At 3:00 PM, 19,000 subscribers were left to be connected to the electrical system
San Juan, Puerto Rico, June 11, 2021— LUMA personnel and crews continue this afternoon recovering the electrical system after the fire reported last night at the Monacillo substation. As of 3:00 PM today, 19,000 electrical system customers remain without service. Of those, 13,000 are directly served by the transformer damaged by the fire yesterday.
Installation continues of the mobile substation that was transported to Monacillo to replace the one affected yesterday by the fire. Once that installation is complete, LUMA will reconnect the 13,000 customers directly affected by the fire. The current estimated time to complete the system restoration is 8:00 PM.
“We continue to work hard to provide electric service to all of our customers. As we have emphasized before, we focus on the safety of both our employees and our customers,” said Wayne Stensby, president and CEO of LUMA.
