Tokelau comprises of three atolls in the South Pacific. Photovoltaic arrays have currently been installed to one island and the installation of another two photovoltaic systems will be complete by October. 4032 modules, 392 inverters and 1344 batteries will provide electricity supply for the island. The first system on the atoll Fakaofo will be switched on in two weeks.
