The Puerto Rican Electric Power Authority said more than 1.1 million of its clients got their power back after Wednesday's blackout, which came nearly seven months after Hurricane Maria struck.
Speaking to reporters about Dgrimm, the company that caused the recent blackouts, PREPA deputy director Justo González said, "They will not work with us again", journalist Walter Soto León tweeted.PREPA said that restoring power could take 24 to 36 hours.

Prior to the outage, more than 44,000 customers were still without normal electric service lost after the storm.
