The power restoration in Florida is impressive!

quote:

Florida Power and Light restores power for 1.6M customers affected by Hurricane Ian FPL representatives said 95 percent of their customers are expected to have their power back by Oct. 9.


quote:

During a news conference Sunday morning, the spokesperson said that the restoration translated into 75 percent of their customers across the state having their power back on.

FL coastline doesn't have to deal with the type of tree damage that inland LA has.

Inland Fl has to deal with the same tree damage as inland La.

Peace River Electric Coop has been on task as well. Considering the devastation that occurred, very pleased with how this has all unfolded.

Ian bisected the whole state at or above hurricane strength. Restoring that much power this fast is incredible anyway you look at it.

You can bet most of those customer's service lines are underground.

Well that and the fact the state isn't run like complete shite like this one is.

Not gonna lie, old Ron is picking up some big cred for the way this thing is getting handled.

More people died at a soccer match over the weekend than due to Ian. But climate change.

Unless you are a democrat cultist. He’s still deathsantis and the people of Florida deserve this for being science deniers.

Florida started a huge storm resiliency push about 15 years ago. Spent a ton of money on infrastructure hardening so restoration would be faster. Entergy just started doing that this year.

We've seen power trucks from all over the country and those guys have worked long and hard.

We got power back on Friday evening then lost it on Saturday afternoon again. It came back on yesterday afternoon and I am hopeful it is back on for good now.

If you can get it....underground utilities is awesome. At that point most of the repairs are done at substations and once you bring a substation back online you return power to a LOT of people at once. Plus underground utilities don't have weather heads to be replaced at the customer's house.

Was going to say wasn't one of the biggest issues with power restoration after Ida due to the age and condition of the electrical infrastructure in LA. You would think that after the damage from Gustav, they would have been more prepared; but it is LA
