Now American Samoan Island Of Ta'u runs on 100% solar power (5,328 SolarCity Panels + 60 Tesla Powerpacks)

Solar power production capacities (5,328 Solar City solar cells) and 6 MWh of power accumulation capacities (60 Tesla Powerpacks) on the 600 MW (MW) solar power plant on the battery farm. Before the solar photovoltaics (PV) + power accumulator the Ta'u was dependent on imports of gas oil, like many small islets - not a low-cost scenario.

Combining photovoltaics and power generation is not exactly inexpensive at this point, but often a very good option for small isolated municipalities (if a first financing can be found). The funds in this case were provided by the American Samoa Economic Development Authority, the Ministry of the Interior and the Environmental Protection Agency.

Tesla and SolarCity say the new isolated micronetwork provides 24/7 access to energy - without blackouts and bottlenecks. For those who cannot see the tape, it is about 17 sq. m., has a unique street and is of vulcanic origins.

To put it another way, it is an almost perfect place to showcase a SolarCity + Tesla micronetwork like the one that' s already in place - not to speak of an environmentally friendly electrical vehicle. Currently he is writing for a livelihood on a wide range of topics, from academia and policy to armed forces and renewables.
