Since 2019, Enact has proudly empowered Puerto Rican solar installers across the island through our solar design and sales software. After nearly five years, Puerto Rico continues to be an important market for Enact.
As part of our efforts on the island, Enact’s senior sales manager Danny Hernandez will speak to solar professionals at the 2023 annual Solar + Energy Storage Association of Puerto Rico (SESA) summit. Hernandez’s message will focus on how solar installers can use the Enact platform for storage battery analysis in residential and commercial projects.
The 7th Annual Solar Energy Summit will be held from November 6-8 at the oceanfront Fairmont El San Juan Hotel in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Puerto Rico has embraced solar energy, more than 44 states in the U.S. The Caribbean island may see enough sunlight to power over four times its residential needs, according to a U.S. government study.
Puerto Rico’s switch to solar is due to a variety of factors, including the aftermath of multiple devastating hurricanes that left thousands without power. Solar energy is not only critical to climate resiliency, but supplies the island with job opportunities.

Solar energy and energy storage in Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico’s valuable location and pursuit of climate resiliency have motivated thousands of residential and commercial solar projects. Along with financial benefits and sustainability goals, there is an optimistic future for solar in the commonwealth.
Solar and energy storage offers a life-line to the island’s estimated 3.264 million residents. Multiple devastating hurricanes and tropical storms — such as Irma, Maria and Fiona — have overwhelmed Puerto Rico’s infrastructure and left homes and businesses without power.
Rooftop solar and battery storage offers the island resiliency in addition to the economic and environmental benefits. This resiliency can mean the difference between life and death, as well as bringing comfort and stability following extreme weather.
This summer, CNET reported the number of solar-plus-battery installations for homes and businesses neared 80,000 — from 42,000 in January 2022. We expect this number to increase further following the Biden administration’s November announcement that it will pay $440 million for solar installations in Puerto Rico.
The U.S. Department of Energy funding could cover solar costs for 30,000-40,000 single-family households in the commonwealth. This announcement will also bridge the economic gap in solar installations as an estimated 41.7% of Puerto Ricans live under the poverty line.
Homes eligible for solar panel installations include those in low-income areas that experience frequent power outages or those with energy-dependent disability accommodations — such as an electric wheelchair or in-home dialysis machine.
