Details

Since the launch of PR-GRID in May, Puerto Rico’s energy system has continued to deteriorate. The legacy of Hurricane Maria lingers in daily power outages and households that are still without electricity. The country’s energy utility, PREPA, has been plagued by board upheaval. It is a predicament which demands direction, and yet it remains unclear which federal or state agency is at the helm. Now, more than ever, stakeholders are clamoring for a modernized and resilient grid that can withstand another disaster. Increasingly there is a call for decentralized and distributed solutions. PRMA, the largest association of private sector companies in Puerto Rico and the co-host of PR-GRID II, is leading that charge.
