Niue to provide 40 percent of its energy through renewable generation by 2018
DEAR EDITOR, Radio New Zealand International has reported that New Zealand‘s Prime Minister, Bill English, who recently visited Niue, has opened new tourism facilities and unveiled plans to improve services for local households.
New Zealand will also help fund Niue connecting to the Manatua submarine cable between Samoa and French Polynesia.
There will also be more money for renewable energy generation.
Mr English has said funding of $US3.62 million dollars will pay for installing solar panels, which will result in a state of the art generation and storage system for Niue and take its renewable generation to 40 percent by next year, up from 13 percent currently.
