Rebates and Incentives
There was a time when Puerto Rico depended on imported foreign oil to generate up to 70% of its electrical power. However, it has recently made significant strides in renewable energy. The island’s Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard (RPS) calls for 20% of power to come from renewables by no later than 2035. The Green Energy Fund (GEF), administered by the Energy Affairs Administration (EAA), was created in 2010 to support renewable energy development.
In September 2017, Hurricanes Maria and Irma destroyed much of Puerto Rico's electric grid, so that even undamaged generators could not supply power. Electricity generation dropped by 60% in the fourth quarter of 2017 from the same period in 2016. With ongoing grid instability, battery storage continues to help our customers meet their energy needs.
