Municipal electric customers in the path of Tropical Storm Nate should rest easy: Your utility is “ready.”
“While there is still much uncertainty surrounding Nate’s ultimate strength and path, Florida’s municipal electric utilities are watching it closely,” said Amy Zubaly, executive director of the Florida Municipal Electric Association.
They “are prepared to bring in power restoration resources should this storm system become a threat to Florida’s Panhandle and the public power communities located there,” she added.
“We have been in communication with our fellow public power utilities in other states that are also in the current path of Tropical Storm Nate. Our crews are ready to go to other Gulf coast states to assist them if needed and if Florida is not impacted.
“We continue to be in close communication with Gov. Rick Scott and thank him for being helpful and proactive as we face yet another tropical storm system.”
