Professor Bob PoeRebuilding Power in Puerto Rico: Hurricane Maria, PREPA, and the Future of Puerto Rico

Professor Bob Poe will be presenting a talk entitled: "Rebuilding Power in Puerto Rico: Hurricane Maria, PREPA, and the Future of Puerto Rico" Tuesday, October 2 from 12:30pm - 2:00pm at the UAA Campus Bookstore.

Professor Poe has been working closely with the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority since early last summer on developing recovery projects on Vieques, Puerto Rico to build a "hardened, smart grid" and a "hybrid energy solution" for the Islands of Vieques and Culebra, Puerto Rico.

The effort has also included close work with the US Senate Energy Committee. These projects are in the final stages of approval and will be the first to be constructed on Puerto Rico. They are also intended to be the model for future projects across the main island of Puerto Rico.
