Ricky Rossello on Energy & Oil

 

 


Announces Puerto Rico Pledge for Climate Change

Puerto Rico has plans to transform its electric grid to rely entirely on renewable energy by 2050. The clean energy goal is one of 10 measures included in the newly released plan dubbed the "Puerto Rico Pledge for Climate Change." Other measures involve taking steps to mitigate coastal erosion, including the planting of 500,000 trees in coastal habitats. "Puerto Rico is especially vulnerable to the effects of climate change due to its geographical location," said Rossello.

Moves to privatizes outdated power grid

Rossello approved legislation that allows parts of the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority--known as PREPA in English and by the acronym AEE in Spanish--to be sold to private entities. "Our objective is simple: provide better service, one that's more efficient and that allows us to jump into new energy models," Rossello said in Spanish. The power authority has been a monopoly that practically abandoned maintenance of the electrical system's infrastructure over the past decade.
