Ensuring Reliable Service

At FPL, we understand how much you depend on your electric service.

That’s why we’re committed to building a stronger, smarter grid to deliver electricity you can count on in good weather and bad.

We’ve made significant investments to strengthen our electric system and make it more resilient to severe weather. We also continue to deploy innovative, industry-leading solutions to improve the grid – investments that are paying off every day for our customers with better service reliability. And, when outages occur, these improvements help us restore your power faster.

Here are some of the ways we strengthen the system:

  • Inspect power poles and replace those that don’t meet our standards for strength.
  • Proactively review and trim vegetation where necessary to help prevent outages.
  • Strengthen or underground our main power lines that serve critical community services, such as hospitals, police and fire stations, and emergency communication systems.
  • Inspect power lines using infrared camera technology to help us locate otherwise undetectable issues and address them before they cause an outage.
  • Invest in smart grid technology that helps identify and diagnose equipment issues early so we can service them proactively, preventing many outages before they occur.
Trees and Power Lines

When trees grow into or near power lines, they can cause power interruptions. Learn how our program helps prevent damage to the electric system.
