Eversource Contributes to Puerto Rico Relief Effort

BOSTON – Eversource says they are ready, willing, and able to help with power restoration efforts on Puerto Rico, if they are called upon.

In a statement, the company said they are closely monitoring the situation on the island after it was badly damaged by Hurricane Maria. Eversource workers were recently sent to Florida to help put the lights back on in the Sunshine State in the wake of Hurricane Irma.

In the meantime, Eversource will donate $75,000 to New England organizations that are supporting hurricane relief efforts on the island.

“The widespread devastation Hurricane Maria caused in Puerto Rico will require a multifaceted response,” said Craig Hallstorm, Eversource’s President of Regional Electric Operations. “We’re pleased to contribute to those in desperate need of resources. Financial commitments are important to ensure organizations are able to provide Puerto Rico with the resources they need – but as the region’s largest energy company, we believe we can do more.”

Eversource employees are now collecting donations of nonperishable items at their work centers to help benefit the people of Puerto Rico.

Eversource is the electricity provider for Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard.
