World's First Eco Island!

The Tokelau group of islands in the South Pacific has recently began running on solar power, becoming the first nation operating through sustainable means.

Located in the Western Polynesian tropical moist forests region, Tokelau enjoys sunshine all year round, which makes solar installations well-suited for the area.

New solar panels will replace the 2,000 barrels of diesel, annually used by the island's 1,400 residents, and additional energy will be harvested in the form of bio fuel made from local coconuts!

We may as well call them "Coconut Islands"! It's just more suitable!

All jokes aside though, this is a great development and we hope we can see the expansion of this achievement in the near future for the sake of all humanity.
