North Malaitan off to New Zealand to attend course on alternative energy generation

A New Zealand group has expressed interest in supporting Pacific island countries address their energy needs.

The group "Eco Innovation Energy" has identified the need to provide electricity in the rural areas.

A North Malaita man, David Dauta, says the group is sponsoring him to attend a three months course in New Zealand on alternative energy.

Mr Dauta says during the course he will learn about how people can generate power through alternative means.

"I am going especially to look at how power can be generated from solar, hydro and the wind. After I return following the three months course I will try and set up a program for the Northern region."

Mr Dauta who has left for Hamilton, New Zealand will return home at the end of June.
