HELP US POWER UP PR!

The retail cost of a mobile solar generator is upwards of $80,000. Resilient Power Puerto Rico can scratch-build these generators at about a tenth of that cost. We do this by using photovoltaic kits that were developed during our post-Sandy efforts in the Power Rockaways Resilience project. Following the same model, the materials are being purchased at wholesale cost or below, using your donations, along with private foundation gifts and matching funds. They are being delivered to Puerto Rico free of charge aboard military jets, courtesy of Governor Cuomo's office and Representative Nydia Valazquez's office. Once on-island, our volunteer experts will lead on-island trainees, who will be compensated by your donations, to assemble the solar kits and use them to power up public plazas and community hubs.

Please donate today to promote clean, green relief and resilient rebuilding in Puerto Rico.

Solar energy is an immediate-term relief measure, powering up the critical systems that the people of Puerto Rico need to rebuild their homes, businesses and lives, without relying on government resources to repair the power grid or alleviate the fuel shortage. Investing in solar energy now prepares the islands for the next disturbance; when power from the sun will be still readily available even if traditional energy sources fail anew. And solar energy provides clean, free power everyday, helping citizens and businesses protect their bottom line while protecting the planet.
