Ameren sends more local crews to Puerto Rico for hurricane relief

Ameren plans to send 75 Missouri and Illinois line workers and additional equipment to Puerto Rico to help restore power in areas affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

The new wave of crews and equipment is projected to arrive mid-January. The workers plan to work alongside the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers, Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA), and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

“Working side by side with our electric industry colleagues from all over the country, Ameren is committed to powering the quality of life for the people of Puerto Rico, just as we are for the communities we serve,” said Warner Baxter, chairman, president and CEO of Ameren Corporation. “While the challenges associated with the mission in Puerto Rico are unprecedented, our co-workers, who selflessly volunteered for this assignment, stand ready to safely tackle these challenges and accelerate the power restoration and rebuilding efforts for the citizens of Puerto Rico.”
