Ashabhai and Com­pany Limited have signed a So­lar Power Project with Narhari Elec­tri­cal Com­pany Ltd for their main Dis­tri­bu­tion Cen­tre and Head­quar­ters at Karsanji Street, Vatuwaqa, Suva.

The Project is worth $2 mil­lion and will be ex­e­cuted in three phases, with in­stal­la­tion to com­mence in early 2018. The 1st phase will be a 200KWp On-Grid sys­tem that will see Ashabhai gen­er­at­ing en­ergy of ap­prox­i­mately 260MWH per year and avoid­ing Car­bon Emis­sion of about 150 Tonnes an­nu­ally.

Ashabhai di­rec­tor Har­ish Pa­tel said the com­pany had a long tra­di­tion of sup­port­ing the peo­ple of Fiji, the gov­ern­ment and the re­gion, and this was a step fur­ther in sup­port­ing the global ef­fort in com­bat­ing cli­mate change.

“Es­pe­cially at this junc­tion of Fiji hold­ing the Pres­i­dency of COP23, this was Ashabhai’s ges­ture of sup­port”, he said. The Project will be sup­ported and fi­nanced by Bank of Bar­oda.

“We are now on track to sup­port the COP23 Vi­sion with our new busi­ness do­main of pro­mot­ing green en­ergy. With our so­lar busi­ness team, we are not only en­sur­ing the sup­ply of qual­ity so­lar prod­ucts by our pi­o­neer sup­pli­ers, Delta En­ergy and Jinko but we are also con­tribut­ing to the na­tion’s growth by devel­op­ing skilled re­sources and pro­mot­ing aware­ness for the use of re­new­able en­ergy.

Narhari En­ergy Con­sul­tant Er. Pawan Ba­j­pai, said On-Grid So­lar Power Sys­tem will help in mak­ing sav­ings on elec­tric­ity con­sump­tion dur­ing the day time, with ex­pected re­cov­ery of in­vest­ment in ap­prox­i­mately five to eight years and will not only help in sta­bil­is­ing the power tar­iff for the next 25 years but also help in re­duc­ing the busi­ness oper­at­ing cost and car­bon foot­print.
