Sunergise smart school installation features in Fiji Sun
Leading Pacific solar energy provider Sunergise has installed an 88KW roof mounted solar photovoltaic (PV) array at International School Suva (ISS). The system will help the school promote sustainable energy and future technologies 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 over 2000 trees.
Anna Marsden, Principal of ISS, commented, “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.”
Ajay Raniga, Director of Sunergise Fiji, says “ISS’ students today will be part of the nation’s leadership in the future. Adopting solar at the school is not just a smart business decision. The installation can be a catalyst for inquiry, critical discussion and communication among the students, and between the students and the community”.
