PACNEWS Article. To date, Masdar says it has deployed five projects with capacity to generate 2.6MW of electricity, the first being a 512- kilowatt solar plant on Tonga. The projects also include the region’s first ever wind farm, on Samoa, and three “micro-grid” solar plants in Fiji, which are supplying clean energy to its outer islands.
 
The two newly completed plants comprise a 500kW solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant on Tuvalu’s atoll of Funafuti, with a similar-sized PV and water protection plant on the Tarawa atoll of the Republic of Kiribati.
