FPL Marks End Of 2012 Hurricane Season Today, But Continues Year-round Focus On Readiness For Weather Events

FPL continues to focus on storm resiliencyIn the 20 years since Hurricane Andrew, FPL has invested to make its systems more resilient to storms, utilized significant technological advances, improved how crews and resources are positioned, and made its emergency response organization more efficient to help restoration efforts. In addition, there are many tools and technologies that FPL uses today that didn't exist in the early '90s including improved weather information, Global Positioning Systems, restoration spatial view and infrared technology.

Technology advancements allow FPL to inform customers about restoration efforts faster after a storm. For example, hours after a storm, FPL creates a preliminary restoration estimate using computer modeling based on historical data. The estimate will change as damage reports from the field are complete, but it's intended to help customers and communities make initial plans. 

In addition, at the start of the 2012 storm season, FPL opened the state-of-the-art Category-5-rated FPL Command Center in Riviera Beach, Fla., that is the brain center of the company's restoration and logistics planning for its 35-county service territory.  

Florida Power & Light Company Florida Power & Light Company is the largest electric utility in Florida and one of the largest rate-regulated utilities in the United States. FPL serves approximately 4.6 million customer accounts and is a leading Florida employer with approximately 10,000 employees. The company consistently outperforms national averages for service reliability while its typical residential customer bills, based on data available in December 2011, are about 25 percent below the national average. A clean energy leader, FPL has one of the lowest emissions profiles and one of the leading energy efficiency programs among utilities nationwide. FPL is a subsidiary of Juno Beach, Fla.-based NextEra Energy, Inc. (NYSE: NEE). For more information, visit www.FPL.com.
