On Thursday, April 11, 2019, Puerto Rico signed into law the Puerto Rico Energy Public Policy Act. This act will begin the process of Puerto Rico moving to 100% clean energy by the year 2050. The act will transform their economy, and renewable energy will be an integral part of the shift. The long-term impact on the island’s culture will reach far beyond energy solutions.
Puerto Rico joins a list of U.S. States and businesses that are setting aggressive goals related to clean energy. There is a growing movement toward clean energy my many public and private entities. This will result in a progressively increasing impact on the solar industry, as well as other green industries.
