    Puerto Rico Could Show the Future of Solar and Energy Storage

    lon Musk has gotten a lot of attention for his proposed efforts to rebuild Puerto Rico's electric grid, which could prove how cheap and valuable solar and energy storage could be in the decades ahead. Musk's plan isn't public yet, but it would likely mean bringing Powerpacks to the island to help deal with outages that still affect 90% of consumers.
