Turtle Island implementing impressive solar technology

Like sunning reptiles on the sandy beaches, Turtle Island Resort is implementing a vast solar energy program in Fiji. The largest construction project the island has ever seen, Turtle Island Resort will be running on 89% solar energy come this November due to the noble and notable efforts of the ownership group.

"At Turtle Island we have a long history of sustainability. For 32 years we've tried to impact the environment as little as possible," said Richard Evanson, owner of Turtle Island. "This solar project has long been a goal for us and we're very proud to finally see it come to fruition."    

A leader in ecotourism, the outlaying island from the main Fiji islands produces its own energy out of necessity. While other neighboring islands and resorts utilize diesel generators, with this solar implementation, Turtle Island Resort will save about 127,000 liters of diesel fuel output per year.

An exclusive island that hosts only 14 couples at a time, the breathtakingly beautiful island resort is a utopia in the South Pacific Ocean. From private beaches to the new solar technology, the luxury vacation of your dreams has now gone green at the all-inclusive resort. To make reservations at Turtle Island Resort, visit
