Hurricane Series Continue: Restoring Power Safely and Efficiently after a storm:
- Checking and Repairing Power Plants & Main Transmission Lines: Our first priority is to inspect the entire power system for damages. This is necessary so we can first identify and fix any damage to the power plant and the main transmission lines that take power from our generating stations. If there are problems with these parts of the system, then it may be physically impossible to generate and get power to you.
- Getting power to essential services: Once it is safe to start turning the lights back on, electricity is first restored to the main lines that provide electricity to essential services such as hospitals, airports, communication systems, police and water supply facilities.
- Fixing Smaller & Larger Power Lines: This stage in our restoration is to get as many customers as possible restored.
- Grid Restoration: Ongoing restoration to all customers with continued repairs to small and large distribution lines
