In the news again for the Northern Cook Island project.

Last week a delegation of Cook Island and New Zealand Government officials plus PowerSmart's CEO Mike Bassett-Smith made a special visit to the northern group islands of Penrhyn and Manihiki for the opening of the 'Huira Natura ke Tokerau' solar projects. This $20.5 million dollar project has been funded by the New Zealand Aid Programme.
