THE 5 MILLION-NOK MILESTONE DAY

Friday was a milestone day in the history of SunErgy/2 Mites as the company successfully completed a 5 000 000 Norwegian krone or a little more than half a million Euro share capital increase.

“This is how we planned from the very start,” says Dr. Stein Skjorshammer, who started the company together with Mr. Haugen.

“The idea from the very beginning has been to take in additional capital as we continued building” Mr. Haugen and Dr. Skjorshammer informs. “So far it has worked as planned. Existing shareholders contributed the money needed to finish the next villages. We interpret this as a vote of confidence in us, the worked carried out and the vision of SunErgy/2 Mites. Actually, we could have gotten more money, but this was what we needed this time”, they concluded, thanking all who support and take an active part in the future success of companies.

“As the activity increases, we remind about the loan certificates”, Dr. Skjorshammer says. “Those who want to know more should get in touch with Mr. Knut-Arne Wendel who handles the certificates. They can do so by going to our home https://2mitescredit.org/services/ page or contacting Mr. Wendel on phone +47 915 47 047.”

 

STUDENTS OF SOLAR ENERGY

Each Summer SunErgy accepts a group of students for internship in solar energy. This year five lucky engineering students from the University of Buea got the opportunity.

The students are being trained in all aspects of solar energy including solar power generation, transmission, distribution, the solar business and the SunErgy idea and vision. They also participate actively working in “SunErgy villages”

“Education is a cornerstone for future development and growth of Africa; the same with electricity. The two walk hand in hand” says Mr. Mike Fohba, Managing Director of SunErgy Cameroon and responsible for the training assisted by the Technical Director Mr. John Ngam and other staff members.

“During their three months training with us, they acquire a lot of knowledge and practical skills, which will turn them into better students, while also preparing them for the job market and future jobs,” Mr. Fohba concludes, himself a part-time engineering lecturer at the University of Buea.20160808_115412

“HAPPY BIRTHDAY”

On the 15 of August we will celebrate the one-year anniversary of switching on electricity in the village of Bokosso. In addition this past year we provided the people with access to cable TV and the Internet.

Enclosed you can read how the people have experienced the past year. We named it “The peoples voice”

FIRST SOLAR POWER STATION HAS ARRIVED

The first solar power station has arrived and was installed in Bokosso on June 10th. According the Mr. Mike Fohba, Managing Director of Sunergy Cameroon: “The plan is for the plant to turn on the lights in last week of June. Work is going according to schedule. I am confident we will meet the deadline for Bokosso after which we will continue to a next village. Altogether we plan to “electrify” six villages this year. By 2018 all 92 villages in the project should be up and running.”

WITH FULL SPEED AHEAD

The work with wiring of households is going ahead with full speed. The picture shows the team of ten electricians working in Bokosso. They have been there for two weeks and will soon be finishing wiring the homes, after which they will start building the grid. “People here are ecstatic” says Mr. Ngam, Chief Electrical Engineer, responsible for the work. “I think we all can understand that after waiting for a generation for electricity, it is finally their turn. What we take for granted, they will only have within a month or so. What a joy!”
