As resilience experts, Blue Planet Energy was one of the first companies on the ground in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria struck in 2017 and was hands-on in the rebuilding effort – installing utility grid-independent power systems for local communities’ water pumping stations and emergency shelters at local schools while at the same time training over 1,000 locals to install and maintain these systems.

We are proud to partner with a company like Blue Planet Energy and are eager to help spread their mission! Blue Planet Energy solutions are available in various locations around the world, with installations in California, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Mexico and beyond.
