Always belonging to the Fiji archipelago, the Beqa island extends for 36 km² and is home to 3.000 inhabitants. It achieved the 100% renewable target, making it self-sufficient in energy.
In 2013 the diesel generator was replaced by one mini grid based on photovoltaics and batteries, capable of producing 20 MWh / year. The project was funded by a platform made up of private entities (Inter Action Corporation), public authorities (Fiji Government Energy Department), donor states (Japan) and with the contribution of the local community. Since it has been in operation, 73.000 liters of fuel have been saved every year, equal to 192 tCO2/ year not issued. The price of electricity has dropped significantly and the rate structure generates revenues of the order of $ 3.600 a year, invested in maintenance.
