Following Whitefish controversy, embattled Puerto Rico power authority director resigns

Following Whitefish controversy, embattled Puerto Rico power authority director resigns Following Whitefish controversy, embattled Puerto Rico power authority director resigns

Ramos said in a brief video posted on Twitter Friday evening that it was a very personal decision and that it had nothing to do with any issues covered by the media. "That is totally unacceptable", said Tomas Torres, executive director of the Institute for Competitiveness and Sustainable Economy for Puerto Rico, a non-profit organization.

"There were a series of distractions, and he made the decision to go in a different direction", Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rossello told reporters in Spanish. No matter what terms are used, it is clear there are still enormous problems in Puerto Rico, with far too many people living in conditions that simply would not be tolerated on the mainland. Today, El Vocero newspaper reported PREPA head Ricardo Ramos had awarded a $100,000 consulting contract to a lawyer named in a previous corruption investigation. Gonzalez previously was the company's planning and environmental protection director and operations manager of the Aguirre Steam Plant. Rossello said that contract also will be reviewed. The resignation was effective Friday, the statement said.

"Absolutely nothing was done outside the law", he said.

Whitefish was one of only two companies that offered immediate services, Ramos said. The utility had incurred about $9 billion in debt before declaring bankruptcy in July.

The head of Puerto Rico's indebted utility has resigned following the slow restoration of power after Hurricane Maria, according to a statement from the US territory's governor. "On Wednesday, hours after the governor announced electricity generation was back to 50 percent of pre-storm capacity, a major transmission line failed for the second time in a week". However, the U.S. Corps of Engineers has said it expects 75 percent power generation by end of January.

Rossello has said he anticipates 80 percent power generation by end of November and 95 percent by mid-December.
