National Renewable Energy Laboratory


1 September 2022

Puerto Rico is focusing on harnessing wind as a potent renewable energy source. The Puerto Rico Energy Public Policy Act aims for 100% renewable energy by 2050. To facilitate this, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) examined wind energy costs and potential. This marks the first comprehensive assessment of land-based and offshore wind costs in Puerto Rico. The report underscores the feasibility of wind energy as a cost-effective solution for the territory’s clean energy and grid stability goals.
