As soon as it was safe to start sending aid to Puerto Rico, after both Hurricane Irma and Maria, Tesla delivered several hundred Powerwall Systems, standalone power banks, and employees for installation. But what does this mean for the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA)? PREPA is a government-owned electric company and the sole distributor of which serves the entire island. Will PREPA’s attorneys fight for the removal of these Powerwall systems?
PREPA, who just filed for bankruptcy on July 2, 2017, was already struggling. Now, with Tesla on the island, is the world watching to see if Tesla recreates the microgrid in Ta’u, located in American Samoa, which covers almost 100 percent of its electricity needs? Because all of Puerto Rico lost power, it may be the perfect plan. Could this be the perfect plan to influence how the United States views solar power?
