Puma Energy activates solar panels in service stations
Gov. Pedro Pierluisi on Monday attended the activation of a solar panel system at a Puma service station located at San Patricio Avenue in Guaynabo, one of 200 company facilities to be powered by the same method over the next three years.
The governor highlighted the importance of the net metering system connected to the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (Prepa) grid as part of a need to increase the production of renewable energy sources on the island.
“With each installation, with each action to reduce the use of fossil fuel power generation, we are closer to the goal of protecting our environment and diversifying our energy sources for the benefit of future generations,” Pierluisi said.
Meanwhile, the general manager of Puma Energy in Puerto Rico, Mario Sierra, said the solar panel system shows the company’s commitment to renewable energy solutions with low carbon emissions.
“This effort represents a considerable step to transform the renewable energy landscape in Puerto Rico,” Sierra said.
