“A lot of the community doesn’t expect the grid back in the way traditional grids exist. They’re looking at solar storage systems,” explains Will Heegaard, CEO of Footprint, an organization with a mission to implement sustainability practices in humanitarian response…

“If the community is to survive the next storm, the only way this will happen is through resilient, distributed renewable generation plus storage system,” he said. “This will be the future of all of our grids. Islands like Puerto Rico will be building the grids that we will all be building in the future as we start to experience extreme weather.”
