NPU Mutual Aid Efforts in Puerto Rico

Norwich Public Utilities (NPU) has dispatched the first of what will be a rotation of two-man line crews to Puerto Rico as part of an industry-wide effort to assist with power restoration for an island that was devastated by Hurricanes Irma and Maria over a two-week period last September.

NPU is participating as a member of the American Public Power Association, which is supporting the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) in the restoration effort along with other mainland utilities and the federal government.

“Whenever NPU has the capacity and the ability to provide mutual aid to another utility and to help thousands of people in need, we will,” said John Bilda, General Manager of NPU. “We are proud to provide support to the residents of Puerto Rico during this unprecedented time.”
