Puerto Rico awaits procurements to add 3.75 GW solar, 1.5 GW storage.

by Feb 19, 2021

Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) will issue six solar and storage procurements, totaling 3.75 GW of solar and 1.5 GW of four-hour storage, within the next 30 months. The regulator has set a target to release the first procurement as early as possible this year to secure 1,000 MW of solar and 500 MW of storage. A study by PREPA concludes that Puerto Rico’s grid can handle only 650 MW utility-scale renewable generation, including existing renewables. That value could increase as a result of system upgrades and energy storage systems expected to be incorporated in the near future.
