Helping FPL deliver more reliable electric service
By investing in advanced technologies, FPL is able to prevent many power outages and, if they do occur, get the lights back on faster.
- Outage prevention: With performance and diagnostic centers gathering and analyzing data like "nerve centers" on the grid, we perform predictive maintenance before brewing issues become disruptive problems.
- Outage identification: Advanced sensors and switches help to quickly identify an outage and reroute power around the trouble spot, preventing more widespread outages.
- Faster restoration: Advanced monitoring equipment communicates the location of many outages to mobile crews for faster repair and restoration.
Automated smart grid devices improve the self-healing capabilities of the electric grid.
