The Home Energy Resilience Improvements Program (CEWRI-HH) provides households the possibility of acquiring a renewable solar energy equipment, which consists of a Photovoltaic System (PVS) and a Battery Storage System (BSS). This represents a direct investment in a self-sustaining, regenerative installation that could persist and thrive through physical, economic, and social challenges after a hazard event. The Program will prioritize populations of lowest income and offers grants up to 100% of the system cost or $30,000, whichever is less.

Applicants will be responsible for initiating contact with CEWRI-HH approved and registered Renewable Energy Installation Companies (REIC) to obtain an itemized quote estimating the cost of equipment and installation services. This quote will be required at the time of application as part of the intake package. Upon determination of eligibility by the Puerto Rico Department of Housing (PRDOH) and acceptance of the grant by the applicant, both parties shall execute a Reserve Grant Agreement to secure the grants financial assistance. Thereafter, the applicant can hire the approved and participating REIC to install the system.
