Next in line is Ratu Meli Memorial School
It has both high school (37 students) and primary school (112 students) classes. 65 students are from more remote islands and board at the school during the term. Teachers live in 9 teachers’ quarters in the school grounds. The school uses a generator to supply a couple of hours power per day to the school. The teachers’ quarters use lanterns and small generators for their night power.
A solar system will transform the education for generations of kids at the school. They will have a modern computer education with the 24 hour power and the money saved on fuel will create cash flow to buy more laptops and other resources. The teachers’ quarters and dorms will also have reliable power – much improved quality of life for all and no more kerosene lanterns in their homes.
The project includes creating a micro-grid with electrical wiring to the the teachers’ quarters and dorms and repair of the school wiring. The solar system will include 20 x 265W Yingli solar panels, 6 x Simpliphi PHI3.4 Lithium batteries, SB5000 and SI8.0 SMA inverters, new LED tube lighting and highest cyclone resistant Clenergy ground mountings.
