A feasibility study will be carried out at 75 rural and remote community sites for solar mini-grid implementation.
This is because the cabinet has approved a tripartite arrangement between the United States Trade and Development

He says this project will support the design of Phase 3 of the Fiji Rural Electrification Fund.
