ElectroFix is currently completing the PSA – Public School’s Association project involving the installation of Conergy PV systems in 13 Church Schools, which includes two schools in Gozo, the Conservatorio Primary School, Victoria Gozo and Conservatorio Secondary School, Victoria, Gozo – a project for the 13 schools totalling up to 385kWp.
The project also includes the installation of 3 Intelligent Lighting Systems in 3 schools.
“The Private Schools Association has embarked on the Green Energy Schools Project in order to lead by example in environmental awareness. Being in the profession of education, it is hoped that this will have a catalyst effect on students and their families.
“The students will have the opportunity to see the electricity production on a screen in the classroom corridors. ” said Fr. David Cilia, “The principal aim of the project is the implementation of Renewable Energy technology to increase clean energy sources and improving the environment. 50% of the project is financed by the European Regional Development Funds and National Funds, whilst the remaining 50% is directly financed by the 13 schools.”
“The project was entrusted to Electrofixenergy Ltd after a public tender that was won by them. We have found Electrofixenergy Ltd to be reliable partners in this project and are working closely with the PSA to implement the whole project in 12 weeks. The quality of the workmanship and the product is high.” Added Fr Cilia.
So far works have commenced on The Archbishop’s Seminary, Rabat ; St Dominic Savio College, Dingli; St Aloysius College, Birkirkara; Sacred Heart Convent School, St Julians; St Michael School, Sta Venera; St Augustine School, Pieta’ and St Elias College, Sta Venera. The other participating schools are: St Paul’s Missionary College, Rabat;; St Elizabeth School, Sliema; St Francis School, Cospicua; St Albert the Great College, Valletta, as well as the 2 Gozo schools.
“It extremely satisfying for ElectroFix to have once again been entrusted with such a large & important project for the country,” stated Debbie Schembri, Director at ElectroFix, “In total the schools will produce 622,200kilowatt hours of green energy and save 25.7 MWH annually from intelligent lighting systems resulting in the reduction of 554 Tons of CO² emissions per year. Additionally, each year they will save €111,996.00 on their electricity bills. We are incredibly proud to be part of this project.”.
