FPL Sending 1,000 Power Line Poles to Puerto Rico

Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) today announced that it mobilized and transported 1,000 power line poles to Port Canaveral and then to Puerto Rico to assist with the rebuilding of the electrical grid that was devastated by Hurricane Maria. Senior leaders within the company went with Goveror Rick Scott earlier this month and have remained in the island, helping out with the restoration effort. The 1,000 power line poles were part of the company’s storm inventory that is stored near one of FPL’s substations in Flagler County. Thirty-three trucks delivered the poles to Port Canaveral where they will be loaded on a cargo ship scheduled to leave for Puerto Rico this week.
