Funafuti Government Rooftops PV Project, Tuvalu
In September 2014, Infratec and Solar City were awarded the contract to build a 170kW solar array on two rooftops in Funafu, Tuvalu for NZ Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The project also involved painting the rooftop of the three-storey Government Building prior to installing the solar array on the roof. The project was successfully commissioned in June 2015. The project provides 5% of the island’s total electricity needs and reduces diesel imports by 62,000 litres annually.
