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.
