Solar energy provider, Sunergise, continues with installation of energy efficient solar power system, this time at the International School Suva.

It has just installed a 88kW roof mounted solar photovoltaic array at the school.

The system will help the school promote sustainable energy and future technological development while saving on power costs.

ISS is undergoing extensive modernization. The solar installation, completed by Sunergise’s engineering partner Clay Energy, is just part of a development program that is designed to position the school and its students for a bright future.

The system will displace over 78 tons of carbon-dioxide every year – the equivalent of planting more than 2000 trees.

Anna Marsden, Principal of ISS, said: “Our curriculum is focused on building skills to assess and respond to the world’s challenges, and to developing responsible global citizens.

“Living in the Pacific, our students are very aware of the discussion around climate change, and the positive impact that renewable energy can have.

“Installing solar on the ISS campus brings the conversation right to our doorstep, and turns classroom theory into practice.”

Sunergise Fiji director, Ajay Raniga, said adopting solar at the school is not just a smart business decision.

He said the installation can be a catalyst for inquiry, critical discussion, and communication among the students, and between the students and the community.

“The ISS students will become ambassadors for the promotion of renewable energy amongst the community and also within their own homes,” he said.

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) has partnered with ISS and Sunergise to develop curriculum enhancements.

This will see the introduction of solar technology and energy efficiency concepts through presentations & discussions with students of all ages.

Solar is now serving a broad array of large enterprises in Fiji – including resorts, supermarkets, manufacturers, agricultural concerns and financial institutions.
