Island Nation Converts to Solar Power

New Zealand's 3 News reports, the three atolls that make up Tokelau are in the process of phasing out using diesel fuel to generate electricity, installing over 4000 solar panels as replacement. The first of the atolls to get solar panels is about halfway towards having all of them installed, with the remaining panels expected to be installed by September. The $6.1 million dollar project is being funded by the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
