Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

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 Gov. Ricardo Rossello tweeted on Oct. 6, "Great initial conversation with @elonmusk tonight. Teams are now talking; exploring opportunities."

FEMA, on the other hand, continues to be mostly useless in doing its job. 75% of PR still has no power.

It's always the private sector and not FEMA who restores power after a hurricane. Power companies in nearby states will preposition resources to get there quickly once the worst weather had passed. The problem with PR is that trucks can't drive to the affected areas within a few hours.

So, the "private sector" has more resources than the Federal Government?
