Puerto Rico Solar-for-All: LMI PV Rooftop Technical Potential and Solar Savings Potential

The Puerto Rico Solar-For-All dataset provides Census Tract level estimates of residential low-to-moderate income (LMI) PV rooftop technical potential as well as solar electric bill savings potential for LMI communities at the municipality level. Each dataset is broken out by income group, defined by the Area Median Income (AMI), by tenure, and by building type. The underlying LiDAR data used the estimation were collected in 2015-2017 and the American Community Survey (ACS) data are from 2011-2015. This Puerto Rico Solar-For-All dataset is intended to extend the SEEDSII Solar-For-All estimates for the US 50-states (https://www.nrel.gov/docs/fy18osti/70901.pdf) for the territory of Puerto Rico using updated methods. Please see the data documentation for details.
