BECi Linemen Roll Out to Assist Power Restoration in Central Florida

BECi is sending utility crews and equipment to Peace River Electric Cooperative, Inc. in Wauchula, FL, to help restore power after Hurricane Irma decimated the cooperative’s infrastructure and service area.

Rolling out Monday morning, BECi crews included six linemen, two bucket trucks, one digger truck plus tools and safety equipment.

As of Sept. 11, Peace River Co-op reports that all of its 40,000 members in ten counties located in central Florida are without power.
