No more diesel: Largest solar farm in Seychelles fully powers a remote island

The remote island of Alphonse is now completely powered by the largest photovoltaic farm in Seychelles, meaning diesel fuel is no longer needed to make electricity, said a top official of the Islands Development Company. 

A total of 2,220 dual glass high-efficiency solar panels have been installed on 0.7 hectares of land — half towards the east and the other half towards the west — to produce electricity for the whole island.
