“Arturo Massol-Deyá believes solar panels will bring power to the people of Puerto Rico — in more ways than one.

Beyond providing cheap, renewable energy, Massol-Deyá hopes a growing network of microgrids will help Puerto Ricans break their dependence on an unreliable electrical system and a colonial governing structure that has plunged the island into debt, cut social services, and denied residents a voice in federal politics.”
“In October, Casa Pueblo finished its most ambitious project yet.”
