Community Energy and Water Resilience Installations Program
The Government of Puerto Rico along the Department of Housing are proud to present the Community Energy and Water Resilience Installations Program, financed with CDBG-DR funds and assigned by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
The program will provide a photovoltaic system with battery back-up for critical loads and a water storage system to a portion of the participating homeowners of the Repair, Reconstruction or Relocation Program (R3).
PROVIDING ENERGY AND WATER EFFICIENCY IN OUR ISLAND
The resilience of the Island requires improvements that incorporate modern technology to sustain life outside the electrical grid and help us to survive emergency events while aligning with the recovery efforts that have already been carried out.
To address the vulnerabilities in the Puerto Rico’s energy and water systems, CEWRI will provide energy and water efficiency solutions through eligible projects that will promote the resilience by installing PV systems with battery back-ups for critical loads and water storage systems to R3 Program Participants without any cost to them.
WHO WILL BE BENEFIT FROM THIS PROGRAM?
Only participants from the R3 Program
Homeowners who receive assistance under the R3 Program and who have received an award notice for repair or reconstruction only.
- Eligible applicants will be contacted via phone or email by a Case Manager from the CEWRI Program, who will provide guidance through the intake process.
- Participants will be required to provide additional supporting documentation for the intake process that will be necessary for the eligibility review of the Program, such as: income verification, duplication of benefits and others.
