Fijians from Kadavu residing in Santa Rosa and other Fijian communities in the United States have donated a Solar Hybrid Power package for Kadavu Provincial High School.

The package will enable the school to be powered on a 24-hour basis.

Representatives of the USA-Kadavu Committee and project supervisor Peni Musunamasi said the hando­ver of $129,107.54 was collected through contributions (soli) from the committee.

Mr Musunamasi said donations included the vasu (those whose mothers were from Kadavu) who got to­gether in Santa Rosa.

Those far away in other states of USA also sent their contribution.

 

The Reverend Qase Sekove Veisa na i Talatala Qase of California/Nevada officiated the event.

Mr Musunamasi said: “The funds were to pay for the solar installation in Kadavu Provincial High School in Yavulu and the USA-Kadavu Committee approached me if I could oversee the project.

“I surveyed the needs of the school, supervised the electrical work to be done and got the best company and quotation of what was needed and aligned the so­lar company to the committee for the payment of the project.

“Now the school will have 24-hours-seven-days-a-week nonstop power supply supplied by the solar hy­brid system which will be of great help to the teachers and students.”

He said in the past the school was in darkness at 9 pm, but now students and teachers will be able to spread their work with availability of power on a 24 hour ba­sis.
