More than 70,000 customers restored


Work continues around the clock as crews repair and rebuild the electric infrastructure in the areas severely affected by Hurricane Michael, bringing the total number of customers restored to more than 70,000 – or more than 50 percent of impacted customers.

 

Progress is being made in some of the hardest hit areas where the most extensive electric system rebuild is required for power restoration. Gulf Power has more than 6,700 lineworkers and support personnel already on the ground in the most devastated areas.

 

“We’ve added even more boots on the ground, and we’re concentrating our efforts in our hardest hit areas,” said Adrianne Collins, vice president of Power Delivery. “We’re focused on our mission, and we’ll continue to work aggressively and safely on behalf of the families and communities in these devastated areas.”
