The project belongs of KOICA's renewable resource project that has been happening in Fiji, the Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, and also Vanuatu considering that 2018.

KOICA prepares to invest $3 million to build a solar power plant on Fiji's third-largest island, Taveuni, by very early next year.

The 1MW power plant will have the ability to satisfy electrical power demand for the majority of the island together with a tiny hydroelectric power plant.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has actually warned of a threat that all island states in the South Pacific might disappear within the 21st century as a result of increasing sea levels brought on by climate change.
