The Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority (PRASA) has proposed the construction of a reverse osmosis water treatment plant in Arecibo. This plant requires a large amount of energy, which can be expensive and harmful to the environment. We evaluated the feasibility of alternative energy by performing site analyses, estimating the costs and amount of energy produced, assessing the environmental impacts, and conducting a cost benefit analysis. We then made a recommendation to PRASA about which renewable energy sources would be most advantageous to implement.
