Wind power in Samoa: New wind farm

Samoa’s lofty goal of having 100 per cent of its electricity provided by renewable energy sources received a boost this week, with agreement reached for the country’s second wind farm.


The Electric Power Corporation has agreed to have the two-turbine wind farm built on the main island, Upolu.


EPC General Manager Tologata Tile says Samoa’s well on track to achieve its goal of using only renewable energy within just a few years.
