San Juan, .- The Governor of Puerto Rico, Ricardo Rosselló, said today that he will soon sign the Senate Project 1121, which establishes the regulatory framework and public policy for the privatization process of the Electric Power Authority (AEE), after the approval of the legislative body.
“While some leaders on the island talk about how to innovate and integrate renewable energy into our economy, today I can say that we are proud that we will do so,” Rosselló said in written statements after the Senate approved the legislative project with 21 votes to favor and 4 against.
“I am very grateful to all the members of our Legislature who worked together to make this day possible,” the governor added in the press release.
As detailed in the statement, the legislative measure will build the road to 100% renewable energy for the island in 2050.
The project will also make Puerto Rico a leader in the adoption of clean energy technologies and will help the island to withstand hurricanes in the future and improve the quality of life for all inhabitants. (EFEUSA)
