US residential solar companies Sunrun, Sunnova and power product supplier Generac have been selected by the US Department of Energy (DOE) to install rooftop solar and battery storage systems for vulnerable households in Puerto Rico.

DOE expected the first installations will begin in spring 2024, adding that these companies will enter award negotiations and may be awarded a total of US$400 million in funding, part of the first tranche of Puerto Rico Energy Resilience Fund (PR-ERF) announced last year, to deploy residential solar and battery systems for up to 40,000 vulnerable households across Puerto Rico.
