Tesla Turns Power Back On At Hospital In Puerto Rico

Tesla has used its solar panels and batteries to restore reliable electricity at San Juan's Hospital del Niño (Children's Hospital), in what company founder Elon Musk calls "the first of many solar+battery Tesla projects going live in Puerto Rico."

The project came about after Puerto Rico was hit by two devastating and powerful hurricanes in September, and Musk reached out about Tesla helping.

Musk's company announced its success in getting the hospital's power working again less than three weeks after Puerto Rico's Gov. Ricardo Rossello tweeted on Oct. 6, "Great initial conversation with @elonmusk tonight. Teams are now talking; exploring opportunities."

Tesla certainly has it's challenges and issues but kudos to the Tesla on this.

If Musk has his way I bet Puerto Rico ends up with the most advanced power grid solution in the US.

Puerto Rico?

Oh yeah.....that hurricane. Media forgot all about that. They've moved on to the next thing involving Trump.

Yeah.......everybody really really really cares about those poor folks from PR.

5 US Presidents (but not Trump) just got together and raised 31 million dollars for Puerto Rico's hurricane relief fund .

It was all over the news. Didn't you see it?

I made a donation.

Didn't you?
