Whitefish Energy probably won’t say so, but the power contractor won vindication of sorts last week when it got a shout-out from a FEMA official for its work restoring power in Puerto Rico.
You’ll no doubt remember that Whitefish Energy spent time in the dock as public enemy No. 1 last year after it won a $300 million contract from the island territory to restore power in the wake of Hurricane Maria.
Perhaps you also recall that we never heard that Whitefish Energy wasn’t doing the job it had promised to do. What people complained about was that the company was making a lot of money to do a job that desperately needed to be done.
