Pago Pago: The com­mis­sion­ing of the is­land’s so­lar project marks the first step to­wards mak­ing the Man­uas pow­ered by 100 per cent re­new­able en­ergy. The sys­tem in­cludes more than 1400 kilo­watts of pho­to­voltaic pan­els, and 6000 kilo­watts hours of bat­tery stor­age. The US$8 mil­lion (FJ$16.45m) project is ex­pected to sig­nif­i­cantly re­duce fuel costs for the Man­uas, which had re­lied com­pletely on oil for elec­tric­ity gen­er­a­tion. RNZI
