SAN JUAN, Fla. (FOX 35 WOFL) - The electrical grid in Puerto Rico suffered greatly after Hurricane Maria passed through the island. Power was estimated to be down for months.
A Florida-based company, APR Energy, is still reporting power to be down for months, but with their help, power in San Juan at least will be restored in just weeks.
APR Energy was reportedly contracted by the United States Army Corps of Engineers to deliver an initial 50 MW power plant -- enough to power thousands of homes, hospitals, businesses, etc.
The turbines are headed for the Pale Seco Power Plant near San Juan. They are expected to be in place until the power grid is functional again.
