Fiji Sun Online, 13th August 2018
I am writing on behalf of the over 700 men and women employed by Energy Fiji Limited, and our tens of thousands of Fijian shareholders, in response to the slate of misleading coverage from The Fiji Times in relation to the raising of the Wainisavulevu Weir to increase the capacity of Fiji’s largest and most productive renewable energy system, the Monasavu Hydroelectric Scheme.
We’ve corrected the record on the height of the weir that was raised back in 2015. That distance was eight metres. But that is not at the heart of our issue with The Fiji Times where they have demonstrated a deliberate and dangerous willingness to undermine public confidence in EFL’s important effort to move Fiji away from dirty, polluting diesel fuel and towards clean and renewable sources of energy.
