For our latest episode in our In Case You Missed It (ICYMI) series for our Line Life Podcast on Podbean,  we are showcasing a narrated version of our April 2024 cover story, "LUMA Embarks on Island-Wide Work Plan."

This article explores how LUMA Energy is aiming to boost reliability and resiliency by focusing on vegetation clearing, automation and substation modernization in Puerto Rico. 

For more information, you can listen to a recent two-part series on our Line Life Podcast featuring Dr. Shay Bahamirad, senior vice president T&D Strategy and Sustainability for LUMA Energy.

Part 1: LUMA's Power Grid Transformation in Puerto Rico
Part 2: LUMA's Island-Wide Work Plan in Puerto Rico

We also published the article, "Powering Puerto Rico," in our 2023 Lineworker Supplement, and it is available as an audio story as well on Podbean

Note: To stay updated on the island-wide work plan, check out T&D World's website.
