UniFiji, corporate stakeholders put together initiation.

A solar power project for Coboi Primary School, which was initiated by the University of Fiji, was launched last week.

Speaking at the launch, University manager Finance and Facilities  Ravineet Sami, who initiated the project, said there were numerous advantages of using solar.

The education of the children is “the key to success,” he said.

“Solar is proven technology for sustainable development across tropics and is cost-effective. It heavily supports COP23 presidency of Fiji and this project not only supports the school, but the Fijian Economy as Fiji’s Prime Minister leads the COP23 presidency.”

He said there were a lot of help from the corporate sector and the contribution amounted to $50,000.

“It would not be appropriate of me if I do not acknowledge the support of the corporate sector because without them this project would have been difficult.

“At this juncture I wish to acknowledge great support and assistance of MV Solar Company, Voltro Services, Glitz Lighting, Office Supplies and Rentals, Sports World, GEM IT and Sugar Taxis in partnering with UniFiji to assist the School.

“The university is astounded with the hospitality provided by the school staff, management, students and the parents. The total value of the project is estimated to be $50,000,” he said.
