ABSTRACT
The article reports on the move of solar-energy contractors to request for more resources for the Green Energy Fund (GEF) in Puerto Rico. It mentions that the funding is dedicated exclusively to residential projects and has already distributed 4 million dollars in it's first opening although only nine out of the 21 projects are considered residential. It states that the high cost of solar-energy systems for homes makes the sector solely dependent on government subsidies.
