Solar panels powered a whole island 28 November 2016
Islands are perfect places for renewable energy. They have access to all different forms of power, with a coastal wind, and bright sun, to the shores for tidal generators. Not only do islands have access to all these forms of renewable energy, but to ship oil, coal or diesel is far too expensive. For years this remote island has been using diesel generators but when one generator burns through 300 gallons of fuel per day you can see where a change is needed. Not only do these generators burn through 109,500 gallons of diesel a year but with the chances of the diesel spilling in the long travel seems almost crazy that 600 people would be reliant on this.
