Hi to everyone! I'm from sunny Puerto Rico, were temperature don't have big difference between seasons. Almost all island have temp +/- high70s- to high 80s except Metro city area that traffic jams jump temp to 100-105, and South, is very dry and temp can go to high 90s.
By 2017 we got teared up by famous Maria hurricane, 99% of island went dark, no electricity for many months, and certain areas, for couple years.
I was considering going solar, but during hurricane, saw many panels flying by or getting damage, after that saw many dump trucks full of damage panels heading to trash dumping area. Then I had the idea to call Solar companies to quote a system, and when asked about the hurricane risks, all of them told me " none a single panel of our house installations got damage, all of of them worked after Maria" . The worst BS I have heard.
Here in PR Nissan doesn't import any variants of the leaf; neither 40kwh or 62kwh. So I was thinking on importing a used 40 or 62kwh along with a Wallbox Quasar (bidirectional charger). The idea is if any hurricane, or many days of blackout due to grid problems occurs, I can give electricity to the house via Quasar (bidirectional charger). Will have a 8,000-10,000w generator to juice up the car after two or three days, depending of which kwh car is or when arrive to 15% SOC, instead of plugging the house twice a day 4-6 hours every session.
My worst worry is how the 40 and/or 62kwh will handle the temps here since I live in Metro city traffic shity jams , and car will be my conmute vehicle.
Any comment, suggestion, or daily hot weather range info will be very appreciated!!!
Wow! What a novel!!
