It is estimated that about 10 projects will be launched this year to reach the 50% renewable energy target by the end of the year.

CEO of Tonga Power Limited, Setitaia Chen says, these projects will greatly contribute to the environment also help reduce the electricity tariff.

Chen adds, the projects works in partnership with various organizations including organizations from the New Zealand and Australian government in order to reach the target.

The aim is to reach 50% renewable energy by December 2020 and since the current percent of renewable energy in Tonga is at 14-16 percent, more work is needed in order to achieve this.
