Generators Bring Relief For Villagers


The arrival of three generators in Nabouwalu last month has greatly improved electricity services in the satellite town and nearby communities.
This was revealed by the Provincial Administrator Bua, Peni Naqasenivanua, who said that now they enjoy 18 hours of undisrupted electricity supply.
“Prior to this, the old generator would provide electricity from 5am to 12pm, it would then be turned off for two hours and then would continue its service from 2pm till 11pm in the evening,” Mr Naqasenivanua said.
“Now, during weekdays, there is no disruption – it provides electricity from 5am in the morning till 11pm in the evening, except for the weekends, where it follows the old schedule.”
“It has really assisted us in terms of the work that we have to do particularly for the civil servants here in Nabouwalu. “The civil servants and the business community around here are happy about that and once there are more businesses established here in the Nabouwalu Township then there will be a 24 hours electricity supply.”
The generator currently caters for 2600 people living within Nabouwalu and some nearby communities. The Minister for Local Government, Housing and Community Development Premila Kumar visited the site where these generators are kept. Meanwhile, civil works at the Nabouwalu Town site has started with 44 lots expected to be created.
