The contract was reportedly awarded through a phone call placed in the days immediately after Maria hit. A PREPA employee who happened to have a satellite phone and phone number for Whitefish made the call, according to a story published by E&E News, an independent news organization that focuses on energy and environmental issues.
PREPA is the only entity authorized to conduct such business in Puerto Rico, making it a government monopoly
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — The chief executive of Puerto Rico's bankrupt electricity company says he did not ask for help from mainland U.S. utilities before and immediately after Hurricane Maria destroyed the island's grid because the utility couldn't afford to pay anybody back for equipment and manpower.
Ramos was on several calls among APPA members prior to and just after Hurricane Irma, which struck right before Hurricane Maria, Hyland said. The question of the utility's financial resources "was never brought up in any of the calls."
Whitefish got the go-ahead to head to Puerto Rico, not from Ramos but from PREPA's procurement employees, who had a satellite phone and Whitefish's phone number, Ramos said. He did not explain why that communication source was unavailable to him.

Not saying anything is going to happen but tomorrow marks the anniversary of the Waco siege and the Oklahoma City bombing.
