LUMA Clears Vegetation from Puerto Rico’s 300 Substations

Many of the substations, which transform high voltage electricity from transmission lines to low voltage required by homes and businesses, were completely overgrown with vegetation, threatening the power lines, when LUMA assumed operations of the transmission and distribution system. To address these safety and reliabililty issues, LUMA crews cleared hazardous vegetation from all substations on the main island of Puerto Rico, removing over 30 tons of vegetation. In the process of clearing, we restored the operation of three substations, one of which had not been functioning since 2010.
