A storm-proof megawatt solar farm is helping communities hit by hurricanes get back on their feet more quickly – thanks to reliable energy supply. And with Hurricane Fiona hitting Puerto Rico five years to the day after the devastating Hurricane Maria, which killed nearly 3,000 people and caused the longest power blackout in US history, we know we need to build resilience to these increasingly incurring extreme weather events, fast. Here to share the details of how we do that is this week’s Climate Curious expert Justin Locke, the Managing Director of RMI’s Global South Program. Tune in with Ben Hurst and Maryam Pasha live from Climate Week NYC to learn how solar farms can stop hospitals losing power during hurricanes, how clean energy creates 7.6 new jobs for every million dollars invested, and why grandmas are the real hub of knowledge in any community.
