For more than four years, Puerto Rico's residents have gone without reliable power.  Hurricane Maria crippled the already vulnerable grid and efforts to restore and rebuild have been met with one obstacle after another.  Now, several U.S. agencies will partner to fix the islands’ battered electrical grid.  The initiative aims to modernize the grid and transition the area to clean energy by 2025. Currently only 3 percent of the energy generated comes from renewable energy sources.  Is the goal to achieve 100 percent renewable energy by 2025 within reach?

"Currently only 3 percent of the energy generated comes from renewable energy sources."

Nevelyn, there's a reason for that.

Again fake news... this photo is from St.Thomas - not Puerto Rico as you imply.


You should follow the advice of your evil twin who says:

"Why citing is important
It's important to cite sources you used in your research for several reasons:

To show your reader you've done proper research by listing sources you used to get your information...
• To be a responsible scholar by giving credit to other researchers and acknowledging their ideas
• To avoid plagiarism by quoting words and ideas used by other authors
• To allow your reader to track down the sources you used by citing them accurately in your paper by way of footnotes, a bibliography or reference list"

Joe, don't be a masochist. You're going to lose this one, too.
