Q: How do we request a solar system donation if we are a community center or community organization?
A: You must be an incorporated nonprofit, recognized as such by the Government of Puerto Rico, or be under the sponsorship of a recognized nonprofit, in order to be elegible to receive a solar microgrid donation from RPPR. Donations depend also on the availability of funds. If you are a nonprofit that provides direct services to the community in priority areas, such as shelter, social services, health, and education, and are interested in solar energy, please contact us.
Q:Who sponsors the donated solar energy systems?
A: Funds and sponsorship come from generous donors, partners and collaborators. These include foundations, local and national non-for-profits, professional and corporate business, and individuals. Please refer to our list of sponsors and collaborators
Q: Why solar energy?
A: Sunlight is abundant in Puerto Rico, and is generally more constant than other renewable sources, such as wind. Our rooftops are underused and and our solar resources unlimited. We believe we are overdue in transitioning towards solar energy as a means of resiliency.
Q: Do you sell Solar Energy systems?
A: No, we only donate equipment. There are several local providers in Puerto Rico that sell and install solar energy systems, if you wish to purchase one.
Q: How can I donate?
A: If you're interested in making a tax-deductible donation, please note we ARE a non-for-profit organization, but our 501c3 status is still pending. We'll be providing details for donors soon.
Q: I'm not currently in Puerto Rico, but I would love to be a part of your efforts! How can I help?
A: You can help Resilient Power Puerto Rico in many ways:
- Spread the word! Follow us on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter and share our story with your followers.
- Contacts. We're collaborating with many large foundations and organizations that share our vision. We are working with several major manufacturers that provide solar energy equipment at a lower cost. If you or someone you know would be interested partnering with us in either fundraising or getting solar energy equipment such as solar panels, inverters & batteries, please contact us.
Q: How can I get a Solar Energy system for my home?
A: Resilient Power Puerto Rico is currently focusing its efforts in identifying, evaluating and installing Solar Energy systems in community centers, non-for-profits and institutions that provide direct services to the communities. At the moment, we are not doing private residential installations, but in the future, we are aiming to become a major facilitator for solar energy, especially on marginalized communities.
Q: Do you accept volunteers?
A: Currently we do not have the infrastructure to accept volunteers, and the installations are organized directly through local solar system installers. However, we foresee that in the future we will call for volunteers to support our education efforts, for example.
