Now that Puerto Rico's governor has called for the cancellation of a controversial $300 million contract awarded to a small Montana-based utility, many questions remain for the millions of residents who continue to live on the island without electricity.
A little-known Montana company called Whitefish Energy stirred up huge controversy this week by landing a $300 million contract to turn the lights on in Puerto Rico. Here's how it landed that contract.
Whitefish Energy, a small Montana utility, apologized late Wednesday night after criticizing San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz's comments as "misplaced" on Twitter and threatened to pull out its workers to restore power in Puerto Rico.
