USA: Solar Universe, the leader in solar franchising, announced the opening of its first international franchise in Puerto Rico by local entrepreneurs, Luz and William Rodriguez.
With energy production recognized as one of the island’s biggest impediments to economic growth, the introduction of the solar energy franchise is a substantial prospect for home owners in Puerto Rico. This office brings Solar Universe’s network of locally owned and operated install franchises to a more global market.
The franchise opening coincides directly with increased interest in renewable energy sources throughout Puerto Rico. The current energy production system in Puerto Rico, as in many other Caribbean islands, relies on the process of importing and burning fuel oil to produce electricity, making it an unsustainable and costly source. Puerto Rico Governor, Alejandro Garcia Padilla, and other officials have committed to supporting alternative energy incentives to increase renewable energy implementation.
