Electric Vehicles

As more and more people adopt EVs, electricity consumption could grow significantly, putting further demands on the power supply. To plan for this future, we are working with our regulators and the government of Puerto Rico.

Key Strategies

To prepare for accelerated EV adoption, LUMA has created preliminary EV adoption forecasts to understand future grid impacts. We will be continuously updating and refining these forecasts as part of the overarching Puerto Rico Grid Resilience and Transitions to 100% Renewable Energy (PR100) study.

LUMA is also looking at what policies can be implemented for residential customers as EV adoption becomes more widespread and more EV infrastructure is available so that energy use and infrastructure can be used most effectively.

Through three key strategies, LUMA is making significant progress in accelerating the adoption of EVs in Puerto Rico.

  • Increasing the interconnection of renewables and battery storage by streamlining the customer process
  • Repairing and modernizing the electric grid to ensure reliable power to support the electric vehicle transition
  • Advancing procurement of utility scale renewable energy and storage to help ensure future reliability and competitive energy pricing

Currently, it is estimated that less than 1% of Puerto Rico’s approximately 2.2 million cars are electric. Making it easier for our customers to use Electric Vehicles (EVs) is critical to our clean energy future, and it begins with building the right infrastructure.



Hosting Capacity Dashboard

We are working every day to connect more solar customers and are preparing for the transition to electric vehicles in Puerto Rico. To achieve this goal, we created an online capacity map to help developers and customers better understand the impacts of connecting distributed generation to the system.
