Saving your environment

WORKING in line with Government's initiative of saving the environment through its involvement with the recent 23rd Conference of Parties, Labasa company Renewable Energy System has done just the same.

The company management may not have travelled to Bonn but their project in providing solar lights for the communities achieves a purpose of COP23 — to reduce carbon emissions.

Company owner Krishn Raj said customers who bought their products got to own it with full after sales services.

"We started in 2002 as a government experiment and did this for 10 years and upon conclusion, the findings of that experiment is what we are using and assisting people who do not fall under government program of solar lights," he said.

"The government program supplied the solar lights and its materials to rural areas and they paid certain bills but what we are doing is selling our products to customers for them to own.

"Another good thing about our system is that it is not limited to usage of solar power. We do tailor-made solutions for our clients."

Mr Raj said if the customers wanted the solar system to cater for the use of washing machines, refrigerators or air condition for the house, his team had the ability and knowledge to do that.

"And my team also provides a backup in which we test the solar systems that are being sold to customers and we also do repairs.

"We can set up the system to cater for their needs and we are also a licensed electrical contractor with the Fiji Electricity Authority. We also repair solar machines and we test it as well and we are very supportive to rural customers, we fix invertors if it breaks down."

The solar system sold by Renewable Energy, Mr Raj said, sustains the environment.

"Through having these solar systems, it sustains our environment and preserves nature," he said.

"We are also specialised in solar water pumping so if somebody has a problem and does not have electricity, we can provide solutions.

"People in rural areas use their own water system so most of them have come to buy and we have a very good market in North.

"It's very easy to sell but to have a support team makes a difference and we do that in this company."
