Georgia customers waiting on power as of Saturday morning

The majority of utility customers who lost power in Hurricane Irma's battering winds have had service restored, but in some hard-hit areas as well as a few isolated pockets, the work continues.

An electrical worker repairs stop lights the morning after Hurricane Irma swept through Naples, Fla., on September 11, 2017.

Florida residents who are still suffering from the effects of Hurricane Irma are angered at the state's electricity board for making it illegal for homeowners to power their homes using solar panels.

Across Florida, 105,867 customers served by both electric companies still remain without electricity.

The suit claims FPL charged $2 to $10 per month that was earmarked to pay for clearing trees near power lines and placing power lines underground.

The storm had knocked out power to about 1.5 million customers in the state on Monday, more than a third of them in metro Atlanta.

FPL spokesman Dave McDermitt said the remaining local power outages are not confined to specific neighborhoods.

Georgia Power said Friday that it had made enough progress that it moved up its projections for finishing the bulk of repairs by 24 hours.

Meanwhile, FPL as of 2 p.m. reported that 1.1 percent of its customers were still without power in Sarasota, Manatee and Charlotte counties.

He said text messages from Campbell's phone show that she contacted FPL on behalf of other people as well. "Residents have been coming to the Recreation Center all week", he said. Additionally, most customers in Immokalee and Lehigh Acres - the most impacted areas by the hurricane - can expect restoration by September 22. "We will not stop until 100 percent of Florida homes and businesses have power so all families can get back to their normal lives".

FPL has established walk-up sites for our customers in several communities.

FPL said restoration in Brevard, Broward, Clay, Flagler, Indian River, Okeechobee, Palm Beach, Seminole, St. Johns, Union and Volusia counties is 95% complete or higher. "Shutting off power is a last resort, and we would not cut off power to someone because they haven't been able to pay their bill for good reason".

The utility estimated Irma damage included almost 1,500 broken or damaged power poles, 2,400 fallen trees, 450 damaged transformers, and more than 6,000 spans of wire totaling almost 230 miles.
