With billions of dollars of federal disaster relief funding having been allocated to restore energy infrastructure, the Center for Biological Diversity has filed a lawsuit to obtain federal records on how that money has been spent.
The unincorporated territory continually suffers from grid blackouts following the landfall of hurricanes.
Initial demonstration projects are focused on select customers that have experienced outages in recent years.
Puerto Rico’s power grid requires more than $130 billion in repairs after recent hurricanes. Solar and storage companies have provided distributed energy solutions in the aftermath of increasing storms.
Solar Earth claims its 42-Watt sidewalk-mounted PV system can provide 75% of a traffic intersection’s power in an outage, while the utility will have to cover the remainder with batteries or a generator.
The Red Cross’ New Jersey rooftop solar system will produce roughly 2.7 GWh of electricity over the next 20 years, the equivalent of powering 19 homes.
The EIA study found that increasing solar states experienced outages of less than 102 minutes, while states with prohibitive markets for solar saw outages of more than 19 hours.
The virtual power plant will combine more than 7,000 Sunrun solar plus battery systems installed at Puerto Rico homes.
Sunnova SunSafe solar + storage systems generated a total of nearly 2 GWh of energy total with 3.4 million hours of aggregate back-up power, or an average of 128 hours of power generated per household.
About $400,000 worth of off-grid power equipment and accessories were donated to support lights, communications, other key electrical services for Ukrainians suffering a Russian invasion.
