50 students and 4 teachers providing classes from Year 1 to 8. 4 good condition teachers’ quarters are on the school grounds.

The school has a disproportionately large generator that runs on a needs basis during the daytime and 2 hours each night supplying teachers’ quarters.

Fuel, kerosene and transport of the fuel saved will exceed $3500 per year. The teachers are excited about what new equipment this opportunity will bring to the school.

This 2500W system installed October 2015 includes: 10 x Yingli 250 solar panels, 1 x SMA SB3000TL grid Inverter, 1 x SMA SI4.4M remote inverter, 4 x Aquion S20P batteries, 1 x Clenergy ground mounting system. Most tube lighting removed and replaced with LED globes. Some general electrical repairs were conducted.

The project was funded by the Fiji Water Foundation. The project was completed Oct. 2015.
