San Juan mayor, energy company spar over contract

Hospital del Nino is first of many solar+storage projects going live,¿ Tesla tweeted today. ¿Grateful to support the recovery of Puerto Rico with @ricardorossello

"Consequently, we could not make any comment at this point while we determine if we will be doing work on the issue". And, Nicky, this Montana company is called Whitefish Energy.

Whitefish only had two employees the day the hurricane hit.

"Whitefish has more than 300 workers on the island and that number is growing daily". Reaching out to the business community and asking them to donate up to $300 directly to a Puerto Rico relief fund of their choice, Business Checkup will then credit them back dollar-for-dollar up to $300 when they purchase services of $600 or more. Instead, they're going to need helicopters to access sites in the mountain range.

SIEGEL: The company is based in Whitefish, Mont., logically enough, which is the hometown of Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke.

OUELLET: Whitefish is a small town, so they might know each other.

"I am fully committed to bringing the resources necessary to restore electricity to the people of Puerto Rico as quickly as possible, and to re-activate the economy and bring normalcy to the island", Zamot said in a statement.

Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz responded on Twitter, which then caused Whitefish Energy to say, "We've got 44 linemen rebuilding power lines in your city & 40 more men just arrived".

Meanwhile, in Texas, a 31-year-old man who was helping repair homes damaged by Hurricane Harvey has died after he was diagnosed with a rare flesh-eating bacterial disease. Hurricane damage impacted the two facilities in Puerto Rico that supplied oxygen for patients and manufacturers. And Whitefish had beat out a couple of other companies bidding on a contract with PREPA. "When they called and needed help - Whitefish went right to work". I guess that limited their powers of negotiating. "My children, who are fluent in both Spanish and English that live in Puerto Rico, they feel like no one cares". "So the carping by others is unfounded, and we stand by our work and our commitment to the people of Puerto Rico". Even Whitefish CEO Andy Techmanski reportedly noted that it's unusual for electrical utilities to work under a contractor.

All the challenges discussed at the subcommittee hearing echoed those expressed Monday by the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) in a letter to Manuel Laboy Rivera, secretary of Puerto Rico's Department of Economic Development and Commerce.

He said that the FEMA representatives said they had additional questions about the contract but that they initially believed it complied with FEMA regulations.

Sean Murnan, of Harrison, is aboard a Navy hospital ship off the island, treating sick and injured Puerto Ricans whose own hospitals are wrecked and powerless. And it's monitoring the supply of 50 medical devices, which are made by 10 companies. "It's a special kind of drip fluid that has nutrients in it", Williams said Tuesday. A before-and-after pair of pictures she took from the same spot in Aguada - a municipality on the island's west side - show green fields and sunny skies replaced with battered trees and gloomy skies.
