Green Energy Giants Want To Power Puerto Rico's Future Grid

By

Solar power is quickly becoming a literal life saver in Puerto Rico. After their devastating hurricane, many people inside the solar industry are sending panels and batteries to help get the island back to full speed. While an eco-friendly and practical short-term solution, this could also be the beginning of a brand new, more reliable electric source that powers the island. That's right: Puerto Rico might just lead the way in solar on a large scale.

The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) has been greatly involved in the change, creating a disaster response form for those that want to send money or products to Puerto Rico. Last week, they announced that they’ve received $1.2 million in both monetary and product donations. That’s just in the first few weeks of them setting up the service, and momentum suggests it'll only increase from here.
