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. This provides a cost-saving alternative to diesel, removing the hazards of power intermittency and making outages a thing of the past. Learn more here: http://bit.ly/2gwlDc4
The first stage of power restoration in American Samoa has been completed and rolling blackouts in the Pago Pago area have ended. Addition of a second large generator and a larger transformer at one location, plus installation of a larger transformer to match the capacity of an existing larger generator at another location did the job. However, the island still has only one operating power plant. Replacement of the other plant, inundated by the tsunami on Sept. 29, 2009, is estimated to take two years.
The end of fuel generators arrived in 2016. 1,4 MW of solar energy captured and delivery into 6 MWh - 60 unit Tesla Powerpack. Energy for entire island even without 3 days without sun. Recharges only in 7 hours of sun. The sustainability of the future. (C) Tesla and SolarCity (C) Tesla Europe
The second stage of a three-tier plan to restore electricity in American Samoa has been implemented. Larger leased generators have replaced the FEMA-owned and rented emergency generators that were placed throughout the island shortly after the devasting earthquake and tsunami of September 29, 2009. The new generators will be in place for at least 18 months or until the destroyed Satala Power Station is replaced.
Here in Hawaii and for our world premiere trailer of #Moana I wanted to do something cool for the fans on live TV (Good Morning America) and give the world as taste of our Polynesian culture. This is our "Fa'ataupati" also known as the Samoan Slap Dance. This is the short version for tv but you can feel it's power and mana. Shout to my boys @Ptevaga & @Arteec03 of #Tihati Productions for joining me at 3AM bringin' the energy to introduce our culture to the world. And for helping me wake up all the hotel guests😉 This dance has got my creative wheels spinnin' now to do something very special, cool and historic for our red carpet world premiere of #Moana at Thanksgiving. We'll see. That may require a lot more baby oil😂. 🌊🎼🌺

It’s Tuesday in our exclusive access series in camp with Manu Samoa! The bulk of the physical work is getting done at their High Performance Unit in Vaitale, from strength and conditioning in the gym to intense skills practice and team run-throughs on the pitch. We talk with strength and conditioning coach David Edgar and long-time Hooker Motu Matu'u about what work is required to unleash the beast in time for Tonga.
