The Fiji Rural Electrification Policy 1993 has been used by the Fiji Department of Energy in the implementation of rural electrification projects which includes diesel schemes for villages, micro hydro projects, house wiring, biofuel projects, solar home systems and grid extension. Villages and communities have been paying 10% of the total project costs and goverment pays 90%. In 2010, government reduced the contribution from communities to 5% and this has increased the number of applicants. The Fiji Department of Energy will be reviewing the policy in 2014.
