Pedro Pierluisi assures that the electrical network is “prepared” for the new hurricane season

Although the most recent quarterly report of LUMA Energy reported more interruptions in electrical service, the governor Pedro Pierluisi assured this Thursday that the network is “prepared” for the new Hurricane seasonwhich starts on June 1.

“The system is prepared. The system has been strengthened. Repairs, improvements have been made. In the case of interruptions, a distinction must be made between when the interruption is due to a repair that is being done on the lines or, for example, a substation, and when it is due to a breakdown. Whatever the reason, if they are faults, they must be repaired”Pierluisi pointed out, to questions from the press, after an official event.

Furthermore, he recalled that, thanks to $1.2 billion contributed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, LUMA – the private company in charge of the transmission and distribution system – is doing “vegetation clearing”, instead of pruning, which will help avoid interruptions. That clearance plan will take three years, the governor added.
