Antonio S. Lucchetti (20 January 1888 – 19 December 1958) was a Puerto Rican engineer and public servant, through whom comprehensive electric service was established in Puerto Rico via the Puerto Rico Water Resources Authority (PRWRA) and, later, via the public electric company, Fuentes Fluviales. Lucchetti was instrumental in establishing the Utilización de las Fuentes Fluviales in Puerto Rico. Utilizacion was established to provide electric services not provided by private companies. Lucchetti observed that private companies operated inefficiently and, in 1937, worked for the government to acquire the first of the three electric companies operating in the Island, the Ponce Electric Co., and to build hydroelectric plants at Carite and Toro Negro.
