Please join us for the first part of our interview with Nelson Colón, president and CEO of the Puerto Rico Community Foundation (FCPR), and Feliciano Rodriguez Domínguez, a Catholic priest and Secretary of the Board of Directors of Pirucho Coop in Caguas, Puerto Rico. Pirucho Coop started out in response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria on Puerto Rico’s energy system. With the help of FCPR, Pirucho Coop established the first solar energy community under a cooperative model on the island. Nelson and Feliciano share how they’ve overcome limited resources and structural challenges on their way to finding the right model for their community.
The second part of this interview will be available on November 2nd. Please stay tuned!
