New Puerto Rico utility head, same old challengesBy Jessica Resnick-Ault NEW YORK (Reuters) - New leadership at Puerto Rico's beleaguered electric utility may not be sufficient to compensate for missteps following Hurricane Maria that led to delayed work, recurrent blackouts and more than $500 million in contracts with untested companies now under federal investigation. A management shakeup on Friday will not by itself cure the chaotic and slow power restoration efforts two months after the hurricane struck the island. PREPA's chief executive Ricardo Ramos stepped down unexpectedly last week, days after congressional hearings on the restoration.
