People using renewable energyGreen Power. . . the power to change lives

People living in rural Vanuatu, and throughout the developing Pacific, have limited access to modern energy services. However, access to improved energy services is essential for sustainable development and the eradication of poverty.

Green power, also known as renewable energy or power from nature or infinite power, can provide power for these improvements with virtually no negative environmental impact. Additionally, there are minimal recurrent costs, as the energy sources are local and infinite (like the sun and wind). Through our commitment to employing and promoting clean energy products, we are working to minimize negative impact on the environment in Vanuatu.
