Abstract: Pacific Island countries exceedingly depend on fossil fuels to meet their energy demand due to unavailability of oil reserves of their own. The importation of these fossil fuels is very expensive and has a considerable impact on the national budget. Thus, it is vital to explore the alternative supply of cheaper and cleaner energy to complement the existing fossil fuels. Fiji is located between latitudes 15°–24° S and longitudes 174° E – 177° W in the south west Pacific. In 2016, Fiji has spent approximately FJD 1.2 billion in importing diesel fuel to meet its increasing energy demand. The present study has been carried out at Nasawana Village (16.9° S and 178.8° E) to investigate the potential of renewable energy to provide electricity to the village community. The study has focused on proposing an optimal hybrid system at a reduced cost.
