New Generator for Nuku.
The long awaited generator for Nuku sector has eventually arrived.It arrived on Rabi aboard the barge and was offloaded at the Nuku jetty,and later was carried to the powerhouse prepared for it.
The generator will power the whole of Nuku Village from the Rabi Council building right through to the Muslim Mosque and the Rabi Health Center.
This was made possible through the Rural Electrification Scheme undertaken by the Fiji Government through the Department of Energy. The project was funded by the British Embassy and Rabi Council contributed 1/3 of the total cost.
Two staff of Powerlite Generators Ltd. who were contracted to install the new generator worked tirelessly from Saturday till today in order to light up the area. Sunday night had the street of Nuku brightly lit with street lights.
The billing system and management of the new generator is yet to be decided by the elected committee members.
