Publix Expands Generator Program


Since first announcing its plans to install 400 generators in hurricane-prone areas last year, Publix Super Markets is adding more than 270 generators to its program in order to cover all Florida stores, where reasonable and practical.

“We continue to work with and rely on the local municipalities and county government offices to expedite our efforts in the permitting process,” said Maria Brous, Publix director of media and community relations. “Our goal is to have all generators installed by the end of 2008.”

Outside of Florida, the generators, supplied by PowerSecure, are being installed at stores in coastal Georgia and South Carolina. The total generator program is expected to cost $175 million.

“We’ve undertaken this major investment so the communities we serve will have access to life’s necessities after a storm,” said Brous. “We are a part of our customers’ lives every day. Being able to help them get back on their feet is the primary goal for this program.”

To date, Publix has installed 269 generators.
