Providing mutual assistance is not new to APS. In 2012, APS sent crews to help with restoration efforts in New York after Superstorm Sandy
, and early last year to assist with efforts in Northern California after major storms caused flooding and toppled power lines.
“APS did not hesitate to answer the call for help,” says Jacob Tetlow
, APS’s VP of Transmission and Distribution Operations. “Our team is working to support the people of Puerto Rico because it is the right thing to do. APS is proud to be a part of this effort, and we look forward to working hand-in-hand with energy companies from around the country to help restore power to the citizens of Puerto Rico.”
APS serves about 2.7 million people in 11 of Arizona’s 15 counties, and is the Southwest’s foremost producer of clean safe and reliable electricity. Using a balanced energy mix that is nearly 50 percent carbon-free, APS has one of the country’s most substantial renewable energy portfolios, and owns and operates the Palo Verde Generating Station, the country’s top power producer and largest producer of carbon-free energy. The company is also a proven leader in introducing technology and services that offer customers choice and control over their energy consumption. With headquarters in Phoenix, APS is the principal subsidiary of Pinnacle West Capital Corp. (NYSE: PNW).
