At the same time, the use of solar photovoltaic (PV) power is increasing on Caribbean islands—helping reduce costs and improve electric grids. And while some solar installations were destroyed by the hurricane force winds, many remained intact. In 2017, Rocky Mountain Institute sent expert structural engineering teams to the Caribbean region to investigate survivals and failures among ground-mounted PV systems
