Nuku’alofa Network Upgrade Project

ADB to fund electricity network upgrade in Nuku’alofa

The grants come from the Pacific Renewable Energy Investment Facility which finances renewable energy projects in 11 small Pacific developing countries.

“This project will upgrade the aged and inefficient electricity network in Tonga’s capital to overcome the effects of extreme weather and disasters,” said ADB Principal Energy Specialist for the Pacific Woo Yul Lee. “The project will focus on climate change adaptation and building back better from damage caused by the volcanic eruption and tsunami in January 2022.”
