Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation is providing critical disaster relief efforts in Puerto Rico markets leveraging their massive global infrastructure and local support.
Hurricane Maria swept through Puerto Rico over 90 days ago and many residents are still without power making this the longest major blackout in U.S. history. Officials have estimated it could take four to six months to restore the power grid to full functionality. Schneider Electric is supporting the rebuild of several major solar and energy storage plants and aiding the locals by rapidly deploying off-grid products to regain power to their homes.
One thousand Conext XW+ hybrid inverters at 5.5 kW and 6.8 kW power levels are being made available to distributers in Puerto Rico.
As a business with a large local presence in Puerto Rico, local Schneider Electric teams are working with customers to offer relief to the affected areas. The primary focus is to ensure people regain access to reliable, safe energy as soon as possible.
