Puerto Rico: Bottom Up #microgrids

Views: 1053
Last September, Hurricane Maria tore through Puerto Rico,
. . . destroying most of the island’s energy infrastructure.

Puerto Ricans then had to endure the
. . . largest and longest blackout in US history.

A bottom up network of distributed microgrids,
. . . is starting to take shape across all of Puerto Rico.

Community owned solar array with battery storage,
. . . will provide them with a microgrid,
. . . capable of powering the facility during emergencies or electrical outages.
But it will also help alleviate energy costs month to month,
. . . freeing up valuable resources to aid the community,
. . . hopefully helping to make the community infrastructure,
. . . as resilient as the people that live there.
