Will Tesla's Elon Musk rebuild Puerto Rico's power grid?

GM: Elon Musk is 'full of crap' on Tesla's autonomous driving capability

Elon Musk has offered to solve Puerto Rico's energy crisis with Tesla Inc.'s (TSLA) batteries and solar systems. The electric auto maker's CEO tweeted that his company has already helped to bring more efficient power sources to smaller islands and could use this expertise to assist Puerto Rico in its moment of crisis.

Tesla has powered such smaller islands as Kauai in Hawaii and Ta'u in American Samoa, according to the company's website.

The idea could come to fruition. "Governor Ricardo Rosselló responded back, saying, "@elonMusk Let's talk.

Maria struck Puerto Rico on September 20 as a very risky Category 4 hurricane with winds up to 155 miles per hour (249 km per hour), cutting off power to all 3.4 million residents on the island.

Tesla has already sent a number of its battery packs to Puerto Rico to help the island store energy in an effort to offset the shortage.

This isn't the first time Musk has proposed launching a major innovative infrastructural project on Twitter.

The poor result left a weakened May struggling to unite the government around policies for Brexit and other issues. He claimed Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson , who has clashed with May over Brexit, told him to do it.

Repairing Puerto Rico's shattered electrical infrastructure with solar energy technology would be cost-effective and environmentally friendly, says Musk. Along with transforming the electric vehicle industry, revolutionising transportation by inventing the Hyperloop and making every effort to take humans to Mars with SpaceX, he now wants to solve the energy crisis in Puerto Rico. But it's an expensive one, and it's completely unclear how the nation of 3 million people would come up with the funds.

Not only would Tesla be able to help, it already has on a smaller scale for other islands. Puerto Rico's government is broke, and the country is quite literally in shambles.

"Do you want to show the world the power and scalability of your #TeslaTechnologies?".

After visiting Puerto Rico on October 3, Trump shocked the bond market by commenting that the island's debt might have to be entirely wiped out in order for it to recover from the hurricane's devastation.

Musk and Rossello would likely not be having this conversation if people had not shared their thoughts about the situation in Puerto Rico on Twitter.
