Florida Matters Preview: Shining Light On The Power Grid


Electricity is such a mundane part of life we may not think about it that often -- until you lose power during a hurricane and are left sitting for days in the Florida heat! We're talking about electrical power this week on Florida Matters.

In this preview, Florida Matters host Robin Sussingham talks about lessons learned from the recent power outages during Hurricane Irma with our panelists:

  • Ralph Fehr, electrical engineering instructor at the University of South Florida
  • Nick Evans, reporter at WFSU in Tallahassee
  • Ana Gibbs, spokeswoman for Duke Energy
