A Category 5 storm Maria with maximum sustained winds of up to 185 mph hit Puerto Rico on September 20th 2017. Near apocalyptic conditions persist as the electrical distribution grid is down in most places. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration released images of Puerto Rico from the Suomi NPP satellite comparing power in these before and after images.

Solar Energy US is taking initiative to help people in rural municipality of Lajas, which lies east of Mayaguez and west of Ponce. This gallery provides a view of the area, agricultural plots in the first stratum of four marked and mapped, 16 solar panels on each farm will produce electricity without affecting agricultural production, panel location on farms and our proprietary solution.
This is a start. This project can scaled up to provide 1 GW of power to all of the surrounding rural areas and other agricultural locations on the island.
