- Published on Saturday, 04 April 2015
This week Sunlabob finalized a contract with the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) to supply and deliver energy-saving technologies to be used in schools and education-related facilities throughout the Marshall Islands.
Sunlabob will supply more than 4,600 high efficiency LED lights and 130 energy-saving air-conditioners to the Republic of Marshall Island’s Ministry of Education.
The contract is part of the North Pacific ACP Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Project (North-REP), an initiative funded by the European Union to advance renewable energy and energy efficiency adoption and reduce dependency on fossil fuels in the Marshall Islands, Micronesia and Palau.
The contract builds on Sunlabob’s previous experience in the Marshall Islands including the provision of 1,500 solar home systems in 2012, and 150 more solar home systems in January 2015.
The company has also recently completed renewable energy and energy efficiency projects in the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea.
“Sunlabob is proud to assist in the Pacific region’s transition to renewable energy sources and energy efficient technologies,” said Andy Schroeter, Sunlabob CEO. “Our experience working in remote, rural areas of Laos and throughout the developing world has greatly reinforced Sunlabob’s ability to deliver on challenging projects in the Pacific.”
