Months after Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico, much is unsure about the future of electricity there. We'll offer two perspectives on efforts to deploy renewables in the post-2017-hurricane-season landscape. Will photovoltaics make a large impact in grid-rebuilding? There has been a lot of talk and a lot of on-the-ground hard work. Clearly, islands and regions are following vastly different pathways toward resilience and sustainability. Caribbean islands and nations already on pathways to PV may now be accelerating their efforts. Much work still lies ahead. All in the BuildingEnergy community need to be enlightened as to these efforts and emboldened to participate in ongoing deployment.
