Rarotonga Airport PV Installation, Cook Islands

In March 2014, Infratec was awarded a $3.3m contract to build a 961kW solar photovoltaic array at the Rarotonga Airport by NZ Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

The project has been named “Te Mana o te Ra” or “the power from the sun” by Prime Minister Puna. The solar farm, owned and operated by Cook Islands’ electricity company Te Aponga Uira, is connected to the local 11kV grid and produces about 5% of Rarotonga’s annual electricity demand.
