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
I cover health care for WUSF and the statewide journalism collaborative Health News Florida. I’m passionate about highlighting community efforts to improve the quality of care in our state and make it more accessible to all Floridians. I’m also committed to holding those in power accountable when they fail to prioritize the health needs of the people they serve.
Robin Sussingham was Senior Editor at WUSF until September 2020.
