LUMA Energy begins complex vegetation clearing project, amid questions from the Fiscal Board about delays

A little over a week after LUMA Energy give way to the first stage of a vegetation clearing project that is estimated to take about three years to complete – and which is the consortium’s main bet to reduce the duration and frequency of blackouts – the Fiscal Oversight Board (JSF) questioned the delay in the start of the works and the “level of urgency” displayed, so far, by the operator of the electrical system.

In a letter On Wednesday, the executive director of the JSF, Robert Mujicaoutlined a series of information requirements to the consortium related to the clearing project, the cost of which, financed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), is estimated to amount to $1.2 billion, but only $18.2 million of that has been committed.

The money obligated by FEMA corresponds to the work with vegetation in parts of the San Juan region classified under “group A,” among which LUMA identified the highest priority areas. This project is just the first of 31 into which the company administratively divided the island-wide clearing initiative.
