Koh Rong Sanloem adds solar power to reduce pollution

The remote island of Koh Rong Sanloem in Cambodia will soon be powered by a solar-equipped microgrid system.

More than 60 hotels, resorts and guest houses are located on the island – they currently rely on their own diesel generator systems and import fuel using canisters.

The new system is expected to reduce noise and air pollution and cut island-wide diesel consumption by more than 600,000 litres per year.

Construction has now begun and the project is expected to be completed in April 2021, at which point it is hoped to provide at least 50% renewable power.
