This is the power equivalent of teaching a man to fish. The fiscal conservatives should be overjoyed that a one time payment to install these solar panels will end dependence on costly diesel power. Because the price of solar panels is dropping installations like this one will be the way to go across the south Pacific. This is a model of how to cut costs and go green. Great story!

New Zealand is spending over $5,000 for every Tokelauan to build this white elephant. That is the equivalent of $25 billion if spent in New Zealand. This is not good financial sense, and wasteful. Isn't it wonderful to be a dependency of New Zealand - never ending largesse.
