Tesla Sent Solar Panels and Batteries To Children’s Hospital In Puerto Rico After Hurricane Maria Left The Island Without Power

Late September, people Puerto Rico suffered from Hurricane Maria, a Category 4 storm which knocked out 85% of the island’s power. According to officials, it'd take at least 6 months to fully restore electricity. So, Elon Musk, co-founder of Tesla and founder of SpaceX and PayPal, decided to help.

Earlier in October on Twitter, Musk made a public offer to help restore Puerto Rico’s energy infrastructure. After Puerto Rico’s governor, Ricardo Rossello quick response, the Powerwall battery systems and solar panels Tesla sent have finally arrived — and the first has already been installed at a children’s hospital in San Juana in Puerto Rico.


Though 98% of hospitals are open in Puerto Rico, electricity is reliable in only some locations. That's why Governor Rossello and Musk decided to quickly install the first microgrid project in Puerto Rico's US territory at Hospital del Niño. Pictures posted to Twitter demonstrate that construction on a solar field behind the children's hospital has already started. The microgrid system combines power generation — usually through solar panels — as well as energy storage technology to let an individual building or group of buildings remain with power, even in case the larger grid fails.




When Business Insider interviewed a Tesla representative, they didn't comment on how big the project is neither on when it will be completed. Nevertheless, Tesla did say that it's the “first of many” projects to come. Musk had previously stated that Tesla is increasing battery production as part of its efforts in Puerto Rico. Therefore, we can likely expect much more microgrid projects to crop up around the US territory.

We hope that soon, power will be restored to each one of Puerto Rico’s 3.5 million residents and that the island will be much richer economically speaking as a result of the aid received from Tesla and other companies as well.
