The Minister of Works, Transport and Infrastructure, Papali’i Niko Lee Hang, says it is important for the government to stand up to the threat by First Solar. The Singapore-based company has threatened the government over a dispute in the treatment of V.A.G.S.T in the existing Power Purchase Agreement (P.P.A.).
In a letter, it has accused the Electric Power Corporation (E.P.C), and the Office of the Regulator (O.O.T.R.) over a proposal to enforce new feed-in-tariff (FiT) regulations, violating an agreement they had already signed.
