The Fiji Electricity Authority’s (FEA) rural electrification project will bring power to every Fiji household by 2021. Partners CBS Power Solutions and Powerlite chose Morningstar’s SunSavers and SureSines because they can withstand harsh tropical conditions and come with a warranty that exceeds requirements. Morningstar’s superior quality, easy installation, backup support and after-sales service were also considerations for selection. Both the Fiji government and FEA have heavily invested to extend the national grid to access remote communities and settlements.
