Puerto Rico’s Energy SupplyOctober 26, 2017
The simultaneous collapse of fuel supply and electricity supply in Puerto Rico shows the necessity for developing decentralized sources of energy that can survive hurricanes and earthquakes. Right now, such reliable sources don’t exist–solar and wind are both vulnerable to natural disasters and other sources are highly concentrated. Burying all electrical transmission lines would certainly help, but as shown by the black outs in urban areas, they are not a cure-all. Only Focus Fusion could produce decentralized electric power that would be robust and secure in almost any natural disaster.
