  • Exactly one week after Tesla CEO Elon Musk suggested his company could help with Puerto Rico’s electricity crisis in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, more of the company’s Powerwall battery packs have arrived on the island, according to a photo snapped at San Juan airport Friday, Oct. 13.
  • The image shows what could be crates of Tesla Energy equipment for equipping Puerto Rico buildings with solar power. It’s likely that Powerwall battery packs are among the gear, because the energy cells are necessary for sustaining electricity off the grid. Three weeks after the Category 4 hurricane hit the island Sept. 20, approximately 85% of Puerto Rico is still without electricity.
  • Tesla’s involvement in Puerto Rico first surfaced a week after the storm, when Tesla employees were on the ground assisting with efforts to connect buildings with power. The company previously confirmed it had shipped hundreds of Powerwalls to assist in that effort.
  • But a week later, Musk personally intervened, replying to a link posted to Twitter and elaborating how his company could help rebuild the island’s electricity system. Puerto Rico governor Ricardo Rossello then reached out to Musk via Twitter, inviting the head of Tesla to get in touch.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)

The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 47.90. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a sell 78 period(s) ago.
