Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa ,23/07/2018

His Majesty King Tupou VI commissioned the new photovoltaic solar panels for Niuafo’ou’s hospital last week during His annual royal visit to the island.

The Government Representative says, the initiative will help improve the assistance provided by the staff of the Tu’akifalelei hospital to the locals.

Falati Papani says, the hospital was operating with a generator but now the solar panels can reach 240 voltage of energy.

More than 160 households were given five light bulbs and mobile phone chargers.

This project is funded by the Asian Development Bank – ADB in collaboration with the Energy Department of the Ministry of MEIDECC.
