Tuvalu is a coral island in the Pacific located mid-way between Hawaii and Australia that has over 2,000 years of history and today is home to approximately 12,000 inhabitants. By placing solar panels on the largest football stadium on the island, Tuvalu is now able to supply 5% of the electricity needed by its capital city of Funafuti and has eliminated the need to import more than 17,000 tons of resources from neighboring New Zealand.
