FPL Expects Power Back on by End of Weekend in South Florida

Noon update on power outages local forecast Irma to Test Florida Utility's $3 Billion of Power-Grid Upgrades
Herman Weaver | 13 September, 2017, 00:51

After Hurricane Irma passed through Florida, 4.4 million FPL customers were without power.

Recovery efforts are underway in Southwest Florida after taking a direct hit from Hurricane Irma, but it could be a while before life returns to normal.

Customers of Florida Power & Light Co., a unit of NextEra Energy Inc. and the state's largest investor-owned utility, were the most affected by outages.

To restore power, FPL split Florida into a western and eastern portion.

Many customers already have their power back on, but more are waiting to get their AC blowing again.

As the storm moved to Atlanta Monday, it caused outages for more than a million customers across Georgia.

Florida's Division of Emergency Management reported Tuesday morning that 5 million customers didn't have electricity.

FPL Power Tracker can be used to find out the status of your outage. That's about 1.5 million homes and businesses without power, more than half of the homes in the tri-county area. On the coasts, storm surges and flooding remain a threat - much of Jacksonville, Fla. was underwater on Monday in the midst of record-high flooding. "In affected areas, where conditions are safe enough, crews will continue to evaluate the damage and restore power as quickly as possible". The utility has about 3,400 employees working on restoring the outages.

Assistance from across the United States and Canada, including company resources from the Midwest, are assisting with restoration efforts.

FPL officials also declined to disclose how the process works, but did say it takes about a day.

FP&L urged customers to not report outages to the company, because its "smart grid" technology alerts them to all outages instantly.

"Certainly, if you are a customer on a feeder line that feeds a hospital, more than likely you are going to have service restored to you before others", Gould said.

At its St Lucie nuclear plant about 120 miles (190 km) north of Miami, FPL reduced power at Unit 1 because of salt buildup from Irma in the switch-yard, NRC spokesman Roger Hannah said. FPL's Turkey Point plant shut down one of its reactors on Thursday, but kept the other running.

Georgia Power reported no problems with its power plants, including its Vogtle and Hatch nuclear power plants, which it noted "are created to withstand significant hazard events, including hurricane force winds and flooding".
