There are around 4.1 million customers who have the accounts with them, FPL President and CEO Eric Silagy said.
Florida Power & Light is more prepared than at any other time in their history to handle the destruction Hurricane Irma is expected to deliver. FPL provides power to an estimated 10 million people across nearly half the state. As, Calfornia is based on travel and tourism industry, the hotels and the residential places can suffer the severe and prolonged power cuts.
There are about 13,500 mobilizing workers from 30 states, including California, to help restore power.
Florida Power & Light expects even more crews to arrive, and they will be positioned in 20 staging sites set up throughout damaged areas.
Hurricane Irma is predictable to bring extensive and substantial destruction that Silagy said will necessitate the crews to rebuild parts of their electric system.
Florida Power & Light will give the prompt service in restoring the power and doing repairs, which will be measured in days by rebuilding the electric systems that could be measured in weeks.
