Ameren is among several electric companies sending resources to Puerto Rico. The St. Louis-based utility company is sending trucks, trailers and workers to help rebuild electric infrastructure damaged in Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Marie.
Ameren says it will send about 75-line workers and additional support personnel. The effort is expected to begin as early as later this week.
They said equipment will go to Virginia and be loaded onto a barge, along with supplies and resources from other utilities. The equipment is expected to arrive in Puerto Rico in mid-January. Workers will focus on the northeast coast area, immediately east of San Juan.
