Catalyzing a Mosiac of Microgrids

Community Owned & Operated Clean Power

The purpose of the Aceleradora de Cooperativas Eléctricas de Puerto Rico (ACE PR) is to support community leadership in forming electric utility cooperatives with industry best practices and equitable financing to provide reliable power to their members.

Electric utility cooperatives have proven to be much more than energy companies, they are also critical economic engines in their communities. By partnering with other cooperatives and local municipalities, they lay fertile ground to give rise to a thriving local economy. In order to accelerate prospective electric utility coops into investment-ready infrastructure projects, we employ the following solutions.

  1. Education and training in cooperative entrepreneurship

  2. Commercial and legal infrastructure

  3. Financial and professional support


We are recruiting!

Join our team or start your own utility coop! To date, ACEPR has identified 8-10 leaders around the island that are wanting to start utility cooperatives in their communities. If you are interested in growing with us please reach out.
