This whole island is solar-powered thanks to Tesla, and it only took a year

The island of Ta’u in American Samoa, located more than 4,000 miles from the West Coast of the United States, now hosts a solar power and battery storage-enabled microgrid that can supply nearly 100 percent of the island’s power needs from renewable energy, thanks to Tesla and SolarCity. This provides a cost-saving alternative to diesel, removing the hazards of power intermittency and making outages a thing of the past.
