Hurricane Irma Recovery Efforts
Millions of Floridians lost power in the wake of Hurricane Irma. And utilities are overwhelmed by the amount of work needed to restore power to these people. That is where Edison Power Constructors (EPC) steps in to help utilities manage the daunting task of getting power restored to the many residents of affected areas.
EPC immediately mobilized crews from all service areas to assist in storm restoration efforts and is one of the many thousands utility transmission distribution contractors working alongside Florida Power & Light to get power to residents and businesses as quickly and safely as possible.
“Our goal is to have crews remain in these affected areas until everyone has their power back,” says Russell Smith, EPC President. “I don’t know about you, but I forget about electricity until I don’t have it. And then it’s all I can think about.”
Edison Power Constructors mobilized 200 employees to work solely on storm restoration during Hurricane Irma.
