Combined Photovoltaic and Wind Power Plant (PIN)

The project will combine a photovoltaic farm with a wind farm for electricity generation.

Project Idea Note (PIN)

    The project will build two complementary renewable systems for electricity generation: a 500kW PV farm and a 500kW wind farm. The aim is to harness Tonga's abundant solar and wind resources to partially substitute thermal power generation based on imported diesel.
