Ever since the hurricane I have been thinking that this is our opportunity to try really installing a serious renewable energy system for a large community. My memory of Puerto Rico is of strong constant trade winds and abundant sunlight. It would just be crazy in my opinion to rebuild a flaky fossil fuel fired and high voltage transmitted system there. The towns are widely scattered and far from the plants. Their transmission lines flow forever through mountains and jungle. The fuel is imported into the island expensively. Solar and wind systems can be small scale aimed at the village needs with large arrays for places like San Juan. If we blow this opportunity to invest sensibly and learn how to do renewable energy on this scale I will be very disappointed.
