PNG rooftop solar power trial underway

From , 3:03 pm on 5 July 2018

Moves are under way to trial a rooftop solar power programme for businesses in Papua New Guinea's capital of Port Moresby.

The International Finance Corporation, which is part of the World Bank Group, and PNG Power are currently consulting with industry players before introducing the pilot.

IFC's resident representative in PNG, John Vivian, says there's no lack of businesses wanting to sign up.

Mr Vivian told Amelia Langford it's a significant move as, until now, it's been illegal for businesses to generate power from rooftop solar panels.
