Just four weeks into the new year and 2019 already has the hallmarks of another busy 12 months ahead – if events in recent weeks are any indication. The Government set the agenda in renewable energy in the last fortnight – in Samoa’s strive to become 100 per cent reliant on clean energy 2025 – by commissioning multimillion tala hydro plants on Upolu and Savai’i.
