$200 million in supplies heading to Puerto Rico to fix power grid

Puerto Rico Electric and Power Authority workers guide an utility pole raised with a crane to repair a downed power transmission line in Ponce, last November.

$200 million worth of materials is set to arrive in Puerto Rico to help the Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) meet its goal of 95% power restoration by the end of March. Currently, around 2,300 USACE workers are engaged in power restoration efforts. This is the first step in the revitalization of the Puerto Rican economy, and bodes well for the future of tourism and industry in Puerto Rico.
