URBAN CENTER

The urban centers or traditional downtown areas of the 78 municipalities, provide essential services to the community and serve as a space for citizen organization in difficult times. Our aim is to work with municipal governments to bring renewable energy to critical facilities in each municipality.

POWER TO THE PEOPLE

At this third target we will work to promote solar electric energy for every household on the island. This plan is a coordinated effort to address the vulnerabilities of the island's existing, fossil-fueled electrical infrastructure.

 
 

FAQ

Q: Why solar energy?

A: Sunlight is abundant in Puerto Rico, and is generally more constant than other renewable sources, such as wind. We believe that our rooftops are way underused with such an unlimited resource, and we are overdue to make solar energy a major force in our path to resiliency.

Q: How can I HELP?

A: If you're interested in making a tax-deductible donation you can donate directly through our  donate button or you can mail a check to Resilient Power Puerto Rico Inc. c/o Marvel Architects 145 Hudson St. New York, NY 10013. Resilient Power Puerto Rico Inc. (RPPR) is fiscally sponsored by the Puerto Rico Conservation Trust Fund, a nonprofit environmental organization.  The Puerto Rico Conservation Trust Fund will receive donations for the charitable purposes of RPPR, and such donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
