American Samoa’s Governor has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the company MD Alternative Energy Solutions and the University of Hawaii for a study on the viability of using natural sources of energy to generate electricity.
Governor Togiola Tulafono said at the signing this is the first step in American Samoa’s efforts to explore energy alternatives available to American Samoa.
He said he hopes it will lead to lessening the reliance on fossil fuel.
