EL PASO, TEXAS – El Paso crews are going to visit Florida to support with power restoration.
The utility company sent 19 employees, from which 15 employees are linemen. Two safety representatives are also heading to Florida. Material and mechanic service personnel are involved with bucket trucks and other equipment.
The Associated Press recorded about 7 million homes to be without any power and electricity by cause of the hurricane Irma.
The work process will begin on Monday when it becomes safe to work and restore. At the moment, El Paso Electric does not know how long will take the restoration and how long aid will be needed.
EPE had received several calls in the past for the restoration due to the weather. Lately, EPE has sent utility employees to North Texas where more than 207,000 houses were without power due to the thunderstorms and floods.
