Renewable energy provides roughly 3% of Puerto Rico’s electricity. But new demand for reliable energy is pushing solar and wind into the spotlight. Destroyed by Hurricane Maria, the old, monopolized system – powered by expensive oil, gas, and coal imports – left much of the Island in darkness for nearly an entire year. Achieving affordable, reliable energy independence demands a new approach. In the wake of disaster, we explore lessons learned towards a stronger Puerto Rico.
Between glowing, bioluminescent bays and exotic rainforests, Puerto Rico is a land that captures the imagination. Rich in colonial history and resting place of Ponce de Leon, the Island embodies the spirit of adventure as a key player in early days of the New World. Exploring the soul of Puerto Rico, Vittoria’s journey dives into Island culture, history, and great outdoors with communities at the center of reconstruction.
