Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum launches Sunergise today at Denarau
Sunergise, the new Pacific-wide renewable energy company, will mark the completion of its inaugural installation at Port Denarau Marina today when the Attorney-General declares it officially open.
The system is the largest solar installation for a marina anywhere in the world, and is also Fiji’s largest on-grid commercial solar power generator. The 122 KW system weathered Cyclone Evan intact and is currently meeting its daily power requirements – thanks to Nadi’s abundance of sunshine hours.
Work has recently been completed on a second installation at the Starwood Golf Club, Denarau and has several more in the pipeline, as a growing number of Fiji’s business community sees value in Sunergise’s offering.
“Our mission is to use a commercial model to bring clean energy to the people of Fiji and other Pacific nations. In the process we help to create energy independence and protection from rising oil prices,” says director Ajay Raniga.
Sunergise works with businesses and communities to provide the best clean power solution for their needs, a solution that brings attractive savings in the near and future term while reducing the carbon footprint on the environment.
Nigel Skeggs, managing director of Port Denarau Marina says: “Our company recognizes the importance of protecting the marine and natural environment in a way that makes good business sense. The Sunergise proposal offered us the opportunity to do exactly that.”
Sunergise worked with a team of international and local experts to roll out the Port Denarau Marina and Starwood installations, deploying world-class panels, inverters and remote monitoring technology.
In keeping with the company’s commitment to building local knowledge through skills transfer, Sunergise is dedicated to ensuring that as much of the technical work as possible is done by and in partnership with local workers, creating jobs and retaining capacityin Fiji to install and maintain solar systems.
Mr Raniga adds:“We are delighted that the Fijian government is taking a strong stance against climate change, and we welcome its support in helping to bring new technologies to provide clean, economical power to businesses and local communities.”
