  • FPL president  CEO Nine million people could be without power from Irma

Gould said it would take until the end of September 22 to restore power along the state's western coast where the damage was much more severe. The St Lucie plant kept both of its units running for the duration, although the Nuclear Regulatory Commission reported Monday that Unit 1 was reducing power output to deal with salt buildup - likely from wind-blown seawater - on insulators in the switchyard that supplies its offsite power. The plant's other reactor, Unit 2, continued to operate at full power.

Many residents in Central Florida are in the dark as utility crews assess the damage caused by Hurricane Irma. In advance of Irma, the utilities had called on thousands of fix workers from across the US and had been staging them in areas where the storm was expected to do its worst.

Assistance from across the United States and Canada, including company resources from the Midwest, are assisting with restoration efforts. She said customers would likely see trucks passing through their neighborhoods to take stock before fix crews are sent in.

"We have pets, kids & elderly people who live on our street, it's been 48 hours, I know you are doing all you can do, anything you can do to get the power main back up over here in the 33334 area would be lovely". "The plan for today is getting through the damage assessment".

The state Office of Public Counsel, which represents consumers in utility cases, said in a filing last month that the proposal "appears to provide the potential for incremental savings for customers", but the office is concerned that the way it is structured would violate terms of a 2016 FPL rate settlement. As of Monday evening, more than 320,000 were going without, according to a company outage map. The latter saw "less damage in some respects than the western side" of Florida and is more of a "traditional restoration effort", Gould said.

Power losses in Georgia, which were nearing 900,000 as of 3 pm EDT, were expected to increase as the storm moved north.

In response, more than 50,000 workers from the USA and Canada have assembled at staging areas across the affected states, EEI wrote.
