Pakin Atoll, Micronesia
Solar PV boosted a community whose economy relies heavily on the fishing industry. With no local grid in Pakin Atoll, there was very limited access to common resources needed to support businesses.
An off-grid PV system of 3.6kW was roof mounted on Pakin’s island school, providing positive ripple effects. Clean electricity access has provided opportunities for technology, business, health, and educational development in the area, demonstrating solar power’s social impact capabilities.
