HPS Energy Recovery Efforts Move Forward, 75% of Customers Restored

Thanks to the efforts of HPS Energy and their restoration assistance partners, power has been restored to 75% of customers since Hurricane Irma hit.  The worst-case scenario for power restoration to the last of HPS Energy customers is Sunday, but the bulk of customers will get electricity back sooner.  FPL says it expects to have 100% restoration in Homestead by Sunday.

Hurricane Irma caused catastrophic damage and widespread power outages throughout the state of Florida. At peak, nearly 7 million customers were without power, with more than 800,000 of those from Florida’s public power communities, like Homestead. In partnership with the American Public Power Association, the Florida Municipal Electric Association and its members, including HPS Energy, put out a nationwide call for mutual aid assistance. More than 1,000 crews from across the country have responded to Florida to assist in getting customer back online. 

HPS Energy and their restoration assistance crews prioritize main circuits before moving on to branch circuits and individual homes. This approach allows HPS Energy to restore power to the most customers as quickly as possible. Keep in mind that some homes may take longer to restore due to excess damage. Just because your neighbors have power doesn’t mean you’re forgotten – your home or your branch circuit may have been affected by a severe weather pocket.
Gracias a los esfuerzos de HPS Energía y sus socios de asistencia para la restauración 75% de clientes han sido restaurados con servicio desde el huracán Irma.  El peor escenario para la restauración de energía hasta el último de los clientes de HPS Energía es el domingo, pero la mayor parte de los clientes obtendrán la electricidad más pronto.  FPL dice que espera tener una restauración del 100% en Homestead para el domingo.

El huracán Irma causó daños catastróficos y apagones generalizados en todo el estado de Florida. En el pico, casi 7 millones de clientes estaban sin electricidad, con más de 800,000 de las comunidades de energía pública de Florida, como Homestead. En asociación con la Asociación Americana de Poder Público, la Asociación Eléctrica Municipal de Florida y sus miembros, incluyendo a HPS Energía, hicieron una llamada nacional para ayuda mutua. Más de 1.000 equipos de todo el país han respondido a la Florida para ayudar a que los clientes vuelvan a estar en línea.  

Los equipos de HPS Energía y sus socios de asistencia para la restauración priorizan los circuitos principales antes de pasar a los circuitos de derivación ya las viviendas individuales. Este enfoque permite a HPS Energía restaurar la energía a la mayoría de los clientes lo más rápidamente posible. Tenga en cuenta que algunas casas pueden tomar más tiempo para restaurar debido al exceso de daño. El hecho de que sus vecinos tengan el poder no significa que se haya olvidado - su hogar o su circuito de rama puede haber sido afectado por un bolsillo climático severo.
