Submit comment on Florida electric utilities' Hurricane Irma preparedness & restoration

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - The Florida Public Service Commission is asking utility customers to provide comments on Florida electric utilities’ hurricane preparedness and restoration actions. 

In a Tuesday news release, the commission said they are asking customers to visit this link and submit their comments. 

“We want to hear from customers about their power restoration time and how utility information was provided to them before, during, and after the storm,” said PSC Chairman Julie Brown.  “Your comments will be extremely valuable as part of the Commission’s review of utility hurricane preparedness and restoration actions.”

The PSC recently set its action plan to review utilities' hurricane preparedness and restoration actions. 

The review will explore the potential to further minimize infrastructure damage that results in outages. 

A docket was established to collect data on the utilities’ transmission and distribution facilities to discern the type and cause of damage from Hurricane Irma.

After the data is collected and analyzed, the commission said they will consider options for action.
