Solar power for Namara villagers soon
June 3, 2017 4:00 am
Around two hundred and seventy people of Namara in Kadavu will soon have power supply.
Work on the over three million dollar Namara Village Solar Mini Grid Project has begun.
Infrastructure Minister, Parveen Kumar, says this is the first government co-financed solar project that is being installed with the Energy Saving System.
Kumar says the ESS will ensure enough power is stored to provide twenty-four hour services.
“This project has the potential to create new opportunities for the people of Namara, especially to our school children. The construction of this new infrastructure is the first ever in Fiji by the government of the Republic of Korea through the Korean Institute of Energy, Technology, Evaluation and Planning."
Kumar says a better learning environment creates a better Fiji.
