With their deep portfolio, resources and experience in the local market, they know more than anyone what it takes to bring projects online successfully.”

Coupled with our development pipeline of over 1 GW of renewable assets, it represents another step towards the strategic objective of being the leading developer and operator of solar and storage capacity in Puerto Rico.”
