Vonunu Solar Hybrid project land consultation is fully supported by all leaders of Bilua in South Vella la Vella Island in Western Province.
“This will improve our way of living while at the same time fulfilling the government’s millennium goal of energising the whole country by 2050,” they say.
A Mr Tim Bula said this is a golden opportunity to shine and be counted as one place that has received safe, reliable and affordable energy.
He said the beauty of this project is that it is not politically driven, ‘it is the Government directing Solomon Power to fully energise the country’.
“I would like to call on the people of vella la Vella Island that this is tangible development coming to our shores.
“Two lights and power point used wisely will cost around $50 per month and 120 dry coconuts dried over cooking areas of our kitchens and selling it at our many local buyers at current price ($2.80/kg).
“Now we are half way there. Members have written so many things about development of our island but some developments have taken shape quietly.”
