Tokoriki Island Resort in Fiji’s Mamanuca Islands, is set to become the first fully solar sufficient island resort.
An expansion and reconstruction of the resort including a 600 KW solar system, is planned for completion at the end of 2013.
“We are well advanced with a full solar installation, to be the first island resort to be fully solar sufficient,” Robert Ring, Tokoriki Island Resort general manager told the Fiji Times.
“The resort has always been a leader in the Fijian tourism industry, becoming the first resort in the Mamanuca’s to offer freestanding villas and bure, air conditioning, outdoor showers, king beds, plunge pools, a teppanyaki restaurant plus 100 per cent solar power across the entire resort soon-to-be completed.”
Pan-Pacific solar company, Sunergise will install the system, which will a largely off-grid installation at a resort in the South Pacific.
A discreet rooftop array of panels will be installed on the resorts maintenance building, allowing the resort to become 100 per cent solar energy sufficient.
