SolSmart Designees


Puerto Rico
SolSmart Bronze
Population: 21,434
Designation Level: SolSmart Bronze
Year Designated: 2022

In May 2022, five rural municipalities in Puerto Rico’s Cordillera Central — Barranquitas, Ciales, Morovis, Orocovis, and Villalba — were the first communities in Puerto Rico to receive SolSmart designation! The communities celebrated their achievements at an event event in Orocovis.

I am proud that Orocovis and so many neighboring municipalities in Puerto Rico’s Central Mountain Range are actively supporting the expansion of solar energy in our communities. This is one step closer to helping our Island achieve 100% clean energy use by the year 2050.
