Tesla Restoring Power to Children’s Hospital Puerto Rico

Tesla’s first project to restore electricity in Puerto Rico is a children’s hospital in San Juan.

…The automaker, which previously committed to helping the U.S. territory recover from Hurricane Maria, is combining its commercial batteries and solar panels at the children’s hospital. The company said it is the first of many projects on the island that will use batteries and solar panel to restore power there.

A week after the first Powerwalls were sent to Puerto Rico, [Tesla CEO Elon] Musk said on Twitter that the company could theoretically rebuild the U.S. territory’s electricity system with solar and battery systems. [PR Gov. Ricardo] Rossello quickly jumped in on the Twitter discussion and invited Musk to talk about making the island a flagship project for Tesla.
