The power of renewable energy....
With the uncontrollable increases in the cost of imported oil and the threats of climate change, the Corporation underscores heavily the urgent need to tap into least cost renewable and alternative energy resources for its electricity generation.
A Renewable Energy Unit was set up in 2007 to manage and develop projects associated with renewable energy (RE) activities such as wind, solar, hydro and bio-energy. This includes initiating high quality research and analysis and providing actual project implementation support to increase Samoa’s use of environmentally friendly renewable sources of energy. Recently, the Renewable Energy Unit was incorporated to be part of the Project Management Unit, implementing the Samoa Power Sector Expansion Project.
Below are some of the recent completed RE projects excluding a number of research works conducted;
- Samoa Wind Farm Project
- Samoa 400kWp Solar Photovoltaic Project
- NZ Aid Funded Solar Project
