Capital Improvement Projects

Over the coming months and years, we are determined to build the next generation electric grid that will support this generation of Puerto Ricans and the next.


projects initiated with FEMA

For decades, Puerto Rico has experienced an unreliable and unstable energy system. To help address these long-standing energy infrastructure issues, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has committed more than $10 billion to upgrading Puerto Rico’s electric system. After years of little to no progress, LUMA hit the ground running and in less than a year we have already secured the funding for the first FEMA projects. These projects, which range from replacing streetlights to entire substations, will bring a brighter and more prosperous future for all of our customers and their families.

Progress Points

  • The federal government allocated $10.7 billion to Puerto Rico to repair and restore the electric grid.
  • Launched $1 billion Community Streetlight Initiative in historic first FEMA approval.
  • Initiated the modernization of 300 substations across Puerto Rico.

To help improve the energy infrastructure, LUMA has identified and selected a set of near-term projects that are expected to start project execution and construction within the next three years. Overall, these capital projects will represent billions of dollars of investment and will employ thousands across every municipality in Puerto Rico. Best of all, these capital projects will help build what our customers expect and deserve – a world class energy system.
