Dominion Energy is one of several investor-owned electric companies deploying a total of 1,500 restoration workers to Puerto Rico. Ameren is sending almost 75 line workers and additional support personnel as part of this effort.

Dallas-based Oncor is sending crews and equipment to help restore power to hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico.

The Florida Division of Emergency Management has reported that more than 269,000 people have traveled from Puerto Rico to Florida in the past three months, but it is unknown how many are considered to have relocated from the Caribbean Island.

The crew was sent to Virginia Tuesday, where they'll be loaded onto a barge and transported to the USA territory.

An expert speculates that the rise might be partially explained by the increased availability of legal marijuana in recent years. However, on a federal level, it is still illegal to possess, use, buy, sell, or cultivate marijuana.

Ray Wiesehan, Ameren's vice president for corporate security and crisis management, said the island has been sectored into seven regions for purposes of the restoration.

Before the clinics began on December 1, RAM's staff had traveled to the island twice to assess conditions, meet with leaders, recruit volunteers and determine the best course of action to make a difference in Puerto Rico.

Cullen says there are four field employees from the Rhinelander, Minocqua, Eagle River and Tomahawk areas that will be part of the restoration efforts in Puerto Rico. The Army Corps of Engineers says full power will most likely not be restored until May.

Since the request for mutual assistance was first received from PREPA in early November, EEI and our member companies have been working in partnership with the American Public Power Association and the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association to supply technical expertise, materials, equipment, and resources to the island.
