CEO Karen Hutt told The Associated Press that 1,000 workers were ready to restore power as soon as conditions became secure enough.
Bahamas fight with Dorian  Dorian recovers from dwindling supplies in the Bahamas
The humanitarian crisis in the Bahamas is getting worse almost a week after the fall of hurricane Dorian. The death toll is currently 43 and is expected to increase significantly.
Food, water and other supplies are rapidly declining.
More than 1,000 people evacuated from the Caribbean arrived on a cruise ship in Florida on Saturday. reports Errol Barnett.
He noted that the CBS news also featured long queues of freeport banks and grocery stores as residents tried to return to normalcy. One resident said it could take a few years to recover completely.
CBS News also came across an Equinor Oil complex hit by the storm. In a statement, Equinor Oil said it protects the environment and has "detected no oil on beaches and we have not seen any oil leaking from our terminal to the sea".
However, widespread contamination seems obvious. It is just another aspect of the restoration that the Bahamian government needs to address.

North Carolina Values Dorian Damage
North Carolina is sending aid to its Outer Banks. Help comes from the air this weekend – helicopters rescue people from their drought-prone homes – and the sea, where ferry services bring food, water and other nutritional supplements to residents cut off from the mainland.
Despite a commitment, the evacuation order for Ocracoke Island left an estimated 800 people dead in their homes on Friday as the Category 1 storm hit the tiny barrier island. Search and rescue teams went from door to door, sometimes by boat, to search for residents.
Elsewhere in North Carolina, Dorian damaged parts of the main road on the outer shores. Some sections of the road were overturned by the waves. State officials say it could take weeks to repair the roads. Flooded roads and run-down power lines also made it difficult to get around.
Wind gusts over 70 miles per hour damaged trees and some houses, and had the residents pick up Dorian.

First Responders carry out rescue operations on the heavily flooded Ocracoke Island. An estimated 800 people have resisted evacuation orders for the island, which can only be reached by plane or boat.
Governor Roy Cooper described the flood as catastrophic. "Currently, the island has no electricity and many of the houses are still under water," Cooper said in a press conference.

Her home was 24 kilometers away. The hotel she works in is gone, too.
"If there's nothing here, we can not work, we can not make any money, we can not pay bills, we can not do anything, I would love to come back, it hurts me, but my children", Ferguson said.
Waiting, a group of Abacos residents are queuing up. There are 76,000 people who need help, including survivors with medical needs. Pregnant women and children must be evacuated as a priority.

They were aboard a ship carrying much-needed humanitarian aid to those most affected by the storm. As soon as CBS News arrived in Freeport and set off, people stood for hours hoping to get ice and water.
Brenda Suberallen rode out of the storm in Freeport and returned to her uprooted house to rescue what she could. "There's nothing I could really save, nothing," she said.
The farther east, the worse it gets. Then the only highway ends over the island. The main street of Freeport was completely destroyed. Many people left their vehicles at the roadside. That is one reason why it is so difficult to get help through the country.
