As part of the Japanese-funded Pacific Environmental Community Fund, the Government of Samoa received funding assistance for 400 kWp of grid-connected PV. ITP Renewables was engaged by Samoa’s Electric Power Corporation (EPC) in 2016 to provide assistance with site selection, draft tender specifications and provide construction supervision. The work included:

  • technical feasibility study of grid-connected PV on several government and utility-owned buildings in Apia
  • assessment and selection of the most suitable sites
  • drafting of tender specifications and tender evaluation
  • commissioning and monitoring of the system.
