Once the cost of photovoltaic energy installation has converged to levels of other renewable technologies, URIEL begins to develop projects based on this technology. The focus is set in countries with high generation cost in which photovoltaic energy allows cost reduction and contributes to a diversified and sustainable energy mix.
According to this, the group has developed and built a 27 MWp photovoltaic plant in Puerto Rico. This project has become a reference installation in the Caribbean because of its size and of its singularities, most notably the addition of diesel backup system and a battery energy storage system needed to meet the stringent requirements of the island grid interconnection.
