A year ago Puerto Rico was dark for more than 9 months. After Hurricane Maria struck, federal, local and private corporations were forced to update their strategies due to the intensity of the Category 4 storm. This led Puerto Ricans to learn the importance of planning in our island. The electric power system demonstrated its inefficiency when receiving the impact of such a phenomenon. Deficiencies that were identified, such as the weakness of the electric system and the lack of materials, forced the creation of a Quality Control Plan. There were countless companies providing support in the restoration of the electrical system. Lord Electric Company was committed to the electrical restoration for 6 months, working more than 12 hours a day and 7 days a week. The development and implementation of this Quality Control Plan remained true to Lord Electrical Company’s commitment. The philosophy of "Do it right the first time" was the focus of the plan to successfully provide electricity service to thousands of families in Puerto Rico, adhering to the electrical quality standards.
