Governor Ricardo Rosselló To Sign Puerto Rico Energy Public Policy Act into Law
New Law Will Transform Island’s Economy, Putting Renewable Energy at its Central Pillar
San Juan, Puerto Rico – Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosselló will sign a bill to radically transform the island’s economy with renewable energy as the central pillar. Senate Bill 1121 (PS 1121), the Puerto Rico Energy Public Policy Act, will set the island on a path to 100% renewable energy by 2050. The bill makes the island a leader in the adoption of clean energy technology that will help Puerto Rico better withstand future hurricanes and improve the quality of life for all Puerto Ricans.
PS 1121 passed with bi-partisan support with 21 votes to 4 in the Puerto Rican Senate. Governor Rosselló expressed his strong support for 100% renewable energy as part of his post-Hurricane María recovery vision and plan.
“While leaders across the country are talking about how to best innovate and integrate renewable energy into their economy, today we’re proud to say we’re actually doing it,” said Governor Rosselló. “I’m thankful to all the members of our legislature that worked together to make this day possible.”
