  1. Florida Power & Light2006 Hurricane Preparedness PlanJune 5, 2006 Presented by: Geisha Williams

  2. Florida Power & Light2004 - 2005 Record Breaking Storm Seasons • 2004 was unprecedented • 3 back-to-back storms within 36 days • Nearly 47,000 workers from 39 states and Canada • 2005 is most active and destructive season on record • 4 hurricanes affected customers • Nearly 45,500 workers from 36 states and Canada • Wilma alone had the largest impact to our infrastructure • Largest workforce ever assembled • Quickest deployment to the field after a major hurricane • Significant impact on electrical infrastructure 2004 2005

  3. Florida Power & Light2005 Storm Season Review - Lessons Learned • Infrastructure “hardening” is needed in the design, construction and operation of electric systems • Evidence of more active multi-decade hurricane cycle • Growing customer base within territory • Customer expectations higher • Storm Secure Plan developed to strengthen electrical grid for future hurricanes

  4. Florida Power & LightPreparing for Storm Season 2006 and Beyond • Strengthen system infrastructure to improve resiliency to future storms and complete repairs from 2005 storm season • Prepare storm organization with the appropriate training and skills to respond to storms • Test and refine the restoration plan • Build upon current communication processes with customers and communities Infrastructure Organizational Communication Restoration

  5. Florida Power & LightInfrastructure - ~ Storm Follow-up Transmission System Infrastructure Communication Organizational • 500 kV Transmission Lines • Completed inspections on all 500 kV structures (~4,600) • Inspected 100% of structures both from ground and air • All cross-brace structural bolts present and tight • Identified work prioritized, scheduled & executed as planned • Conservation-Corbett 500 kV • Rebuilt 7 circuit miles : In-Service • Installed new vibration dampening system • Detailed follow-up on entire line • All bolts tightened • Threads peened on all cross-brace & cross-arm bolts • Post-construction visual inspections completed May 2006 • No problems reported Restoration

  6. Florida Power & LightInfrastructure ~ Storm Follow-up Transmission System Infrastructure Organizational Communication • Transmission Lines (230 kV and Below) • Completed storm repairs on Transmission & Substation facilities impacted by 2005 storms • Inspected 100% of transmission structures in storm impacted areas • Completed ground / visual inspections on all structures on critical bulk & generation transmission lines • Continued routine climbing / bucket inspections • Inspection follow-up work prioritizedand scheduled • Completed all critical structural work Restoration

  7. Infrastructure Organizational Communication Restoration Florida Power & LightInfrastructure ~ Storm Follow-up Distribution System • Patrolled 100% of feeder and lateral lines in storm affectedareas • 17,000 circuit miles patrolled • Follow-up work identified completed April 30th • Summary of Repairs • 1,500 leaning poles replaced or repaired • 1,000 conductor locations addressed • 108,300 streetlight locations repaired • 17,800 Down guys repaired • 28,000 other repairs – i.e. arrestors, insulators • 3,100 Bellsouth facility pole transfers

  8. Florida Power & LightInfrastructure ~ Vegetation Management Infrastructure Organizational Communication • Transmission System • Completed 100% vegetation patrol on entire system • Completed 100% of vegetation work identified • All identified dead and/or dying trees removed • Distribution System • Patrolled 100% of feeder lines in affected areas and removed dead or dying trees • Accelerated vegetation management and line clearance strategy • Completed clearing circuits serving top critical infrastructure • 75% of planned feeder lines to be cleared by peak of storm season Restoration

  9. Infrastructure Organizational Communication Restoration Florida Power & LightInfrastructure ~ Build to Extreme Wind Standards • Proposed adoption of NESC extreme wind criteria • Apply zonal extreme wind criteria within territory • Develop new distribution and construction standards and guidelines • Targeted hardening projects have begun and will be completed in time for 2006 storm season • Focus on Critical Infrastructure Functions (CIF’s) 130 140 150 NESC Extreme Wind Map

  10. Infrastructure Organizational Communication Restoration Florida Power & LightInfrastructure ~ 2006 Distribution Hardening Projects • Critical Infrastructure Functions (CIF) provide for public health, safety, welfare and security • Two South Florida ports • Port Everglades • Port of Palm Beach • Several South Florida hospitals • Jackson / UM Hospital Complex • Mt Sinai / Miami Heart • Saint Mary’s Medical Center FPL supplies Port Everglades with electricity to distribute the petroleum that supplies nearly one-fifth of Florida’s energy requirements Jackson/University of Miami Hospital Complex St. Mary’s Medical Center Mt. Sinai and Miami Heart Institute Port of Palm Beach

  11. Florida Power & LightInfrastructure ~ 2006 Transmission Hardening Projects Infrastructure Organizational Communication • Hardened Transmission infrastructure in conjunctionwith Distribution CIF Hardening Projects • Accelerated planned single pole un-guyed wood pole replacements • ~230 structures replaced in time for 2006 storm season • Completed ceramic post insulator replacements on 8 line sections Restoration

  12. Florida Power & LightInfrastructure ~ Pole Inspections Infrastructure Organizational Communication • Transmission System • ~64,000 transmission structures • Enhancing current Climbing Inspection Program • Six Year Inspection Cycle • Approx. 10,700 structures annually • Distribution • 1.1 million distribution poles • Building on current three-pronged inspection approach • Eight year cycle • Approx. 130,000 poles annually • Working in all areas each year • Collaborating with joint use poleowners for efficiency Restoration Zone 1 Zone 2 Zone 3 Zone 9 Zone 4 Zone 5 Zone 8 Zone 6 Zone 7

  13. Infrastructure Communication Organizational Restoration Florida Power & LightStorm Organization • Modular Storm Organization Structure developed to adapt to specific needs required for different storm scenarios • Storm roles and key personnel are identified to staff the storm organization • Storm training programs have been completed • Dry Run held to exercise restoration process and test enhancements

  14. Florida Power & LightRestoration Plan Infrastructure Organizational Communication • Safely restore power to top Critical Infrastructure Functions while also restoring the greatest number of customers in the shortest time • Plans and process scaledto match the storm • Logistical Support and resources secured and ready • 66 staging site agreements • Selected sites pre-wired with T-1 • Material inventory increasedpre-storm • Nearly 2 million gallons of fuel at hand • 19 dedicated fuel Supply/Servicecontracts Restoration

  15. Florida Power & LightRestoration Plan Infrastructure Organizational Communication • Mutual assistance agreements and vendor contracts and commitments secured • Utility restoration support agreements through EEI and SEE • Agreements with line and vegetationcontractors throughout the US • Critical Infrastructure Functions identified • Top restoration priorities within eachcommunity identified • System capabilities to support restoration efforts enhanced • Damage assessment modeling tool updatedwith additional information • Outage management support systems integrated with customer communications systems Restoration
