Cleaner energy

THE people of Fiji can expect cleaner energy after the world's largest solar installation for a marina was finalised last week.

Sunergise Fiji and Port Denarau Marina developed the 122kW photovoltaic (PV) system on December 20. In a statement, Sunergise Fiji said the development "has a generating capacity of 190,000 kWh per year".

Sunergise Fiji director Ajay Raniga said despite the setback brought by Tropical Cyclone Evan last week, there was much to look forward to.

"Cyclone Evan only set us back a couple of days and we are delighted to bring clean energy to the people of Fiji," he said.

"It is one of a number of projects we have planned for the region. We encourage more people to do their part for the environment by embracing solar as a clean and economical energy source."

Denarau Marina managing director Nigel Skeggs said: "As a marina operator, we are intrinsically linked to the marine environment and feel first-hand the adverse effects of global warming on the increasing frequency and intensity of tropical storms."
