CIFA Goes Green

The panels installed are expected to supply 50 kilowatts of electricity.
The first phase of the project was completed with rooftop panels and the second part of this project is the installation of floodlights for the number one pitch at the CIFA complex.
The project is fully funded by FIFA under the Member Associations Less-privileged program. It is believed the project is the first for football in the Oceania Region.
The project is being carried out by Horn and Bird, John Koteka Electrical and overseen by Project Manager Romani Katoa.
“The installation of these solar panels is a positive step forward for CIFA, who will benefit directly from the initiative. One of the many benefits of the installation of solar panels at CIFA is the reduction in utility costs.” said CIFA President Lee Harmon.
“We are grateful to the funding and support from FIFA with the many projects it has invested in the Cook Islands over the years” continues Harmon.
