Fiji to install solar power

Natuva says last year they managed to install solar units in many areas where people had long been deprived of electricity. He says this is part of their pilot project to supply electricity to everyone in Fiji.

“Last year we commissioned 1000 solar units and the aim is another 1000 solar units this year – so we hope by 2014 everybody will have access either through grid, the generator or the solar.”

Natuva says there are many areas in Fiji where taking power lines or use of generators will not be feasible therefore solar units will facilitate the needs of people in those areas.
