Tesla has announced their solar panels are nearly entirely powering the island of Ta’u in American Samoa.

SolarCity developed a microgrid with 1.4 megawatts of solar generation capacity – enough to power nearly 100% of the island, according to a SolarCity blog posted on Tuesday. The microgrid is enabled by 60 Tesla Powerpacks, the company’s large commercial battery, which can store solar energy at night.
