Schneider Electric is Working to Restore Power to Puerto Rico With a Unique Off-Grid Solution

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LIVERMORE, Calif. - Dec 21, 2017 - 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 ConextTM XW+ hybrid inverters at 5.5 kW and 6.8 kW power levels are being made available to distributors in Puerto Rico. “Schneider Electric is continuing to support relief efforts in Puerto Rico. The Conext XW+ hybrid inverter is a unique off-grid solution. Our intent in supplying these units is to retrofit the existing non-functional photovoltaic systems that can provide much-needed power immediately. When the grid comes back online, the Conext XW+ units will work in conjunction with the grid and support its capabilities over the long term,” said Evan Vogel, vice president of marketing, Schneider Electric Solar.
