Supply and installation of solar panels at six high schools in Tonga, on the Ha’apai Island group. The panels, inverters, mounting, cabling and other system components are being donated by Brisbane-based companies. The project will also be used to provide training in the installation of solar systems to a group of Tongan Energy Ministry employees so they can maintain the systems and install others in the future. There are at least two install teams from Brisbane donating their time to install the systems and undertake the teaching portion of the project. The installations have the full support of the Energy Ministry. The installations are planned for late August 2020.
