Microgrid installed at Puerto Rican healthcare facility

April 13, 2018

A solar+smart energy storage microgrid is being commissioned at a primary healthcare facility in the Mameyes Abajo neighborhood of Utuado in Puerto Rico, according to an article on the Solar Power World website.

The clinic is located in the rural, mountainous region of Utuado, where the residents have been without power and most have been without running water since September of 2017.

Running entirely off-grid, the clinic is reliant on the microgrid to power its healthcare technology, lights and refrigeration, providing enough energy to allow the clinic to administer the necessary medical and mental health care that local residents have not been able to access since Hurricane Maria, the article said.

The clinic is the site of the tenth microgrid system that sonnen and Pura Energía have installed on the island since Hurricane Maria.
