"The Tokelau Renewable Energy Project is a world first. Tokelau's three main atolls now have enough solar capacity, on average, to meet electricity needs," New Zealand Foreign Affairs Minister Murray McCully said in a statement.

This is good news but it's time the larger nations took this action. Let's hope they do soon.

Did you read the article - "1,500 islanders live by subsistence farming, with thousands of others choosing to settle in New Zealand or neighbouring Samoa." I'm not certain that the USA can fit into New Zealand, and we are not subsistence farmers.

Tokelau consists of three small islands and has just 1,500 residents, but they show that can be done. This is going to be way harder for larger nations. TY Nancy!

Bravissimo! Wait until nano and solar merge.

Islands are the perfect place for solar to thrive. Typically they have higher energy costs because everything has to be imported. But not sunlight!
