Department of Energy provided subsidized solar systems in Vanuatu

Vila Times’s Mobile Application

Through the Vanuatu Rural Electrification Program (VREP), the New Zealand Government and the Vanuatu Department of Energy are working together to promote access to affordable, safe, and reliable renewable electricity in Vanuatu.

The team continues to visit communities around Vanuatu, and in July this year the VREP team visited over 20 sites around Tanna promoting these solar systems.

The Department of Energy has now opened up the subsidized solar systems under VREP to all households including those in Port Vila and Luganville.
