""The Tesla system means they’ll no longer be reliant on the grid, which was unreliable even before Irma and Maria. The new system was expensive — close to $10,000 — but so was fuel for their generator, at $400 a week. López says when Maria came “we started calculating, and we understand that we need to make this investment.”"

As sorry electric utilities "argue" no power when the wind doesn't blow or the sun won't shine are starting to vapor lock on their excuses. The BIG blowing sound is the centralized generation utility with power corridor distribution business model excuses, losing air in the ratepayers lives.
