DEAR EDITOR, This should serve as a friendly reminder for us. Quote – “A new solar power system on Tonga’s far north island of Niuafo’ou is giving the local hospital a constant electricity supply 24 hours a day.

“The project received funding from the Asian Development Bank, Australia, the European Union, the Global Environment Fund and Denmark.

“The principal energy officer, Kipola So’otanga, said the hospital had previously been powered by a generator which only gave it power for six hours each day.

“Equipment such as electric fans, refrigerators, lights and others can operate through the system, Mr So’otanga said.
