A New Green Power Grid For Puerto Rico?

Tesla, along with its subsidiary SolarCity, has successfully built a few solar powered plants on small islands, and weaned them off fossil fuels.

In 2016, Tesla and its subsidiary SolarCity completed the installation of new solar-powered 1.4 MW plant and microgrid on the island of Ta’u in American Samoa, which shifted the entire island’s energy generation from 100 percent (expensive) diesel fuel to 100 percent solar. The $8 million project was funded by the U.S. Department of Interior and the American Samoa Power Authority (ASPA). The energy is stored in 60 Tesla Powerpacks — large batteries that allow Ta’u to stay powered for up to three days without any sunlight.  The system was built with the capability of withstanding Category 5 hurricane winds. See news.nationalgeographic.com/… for some more details.
