TESLA GETS HOSPITAL RUNNING IN PUERTO RICO

The lights are on and medical equipment running at San Juan's Hospital del Nino thanks to Tesla. 

The company is best known for its electric cars, but Tesla is an industry leader in solar and battery technology. And earlier this week Tesla turned a parking lot next to the hospital into a solar farm, laying down panels in parking spaces and large batteries to store the energy. The system is a lifeline for doctors trying to save lives. 

Tesla tweeted a photo earlier this week showing the solar array and saying it was the first of many solar and storage projects planned for Puerto Rico which is still mostly in the dark after two powerful hurricanes devastated the island.
