Tesla Helps Restore Power At Children's Hospital In Puerto Rico

By Brian Spaen

Tesla wants to recreate Puerto Rico’s energy infrastructure after being ravished by this hurricane season. CEO Elon Musk believes they can create solar and battery storage solutions at a large scale to aid in keeping people connected when the grid goes down, and they’re nearly done with bringing power back to a local hospital. This is in addition to the Powerwalls the company has been sending for citizens to receive immediate help on the island.

Tesla announced over Twitter that Hospital del Niño is the first project that has gone live in Puerto Rico. The facility is located in the capital of San Juan, the island's most populous urban area. Tesla was able to construct the solar and storage project at the children’s hospital with the help of Puerto Rico’s governor, Ricardo Rossello.
