Seychelles Honorary Consul pledges solar system to La Digue home

Seychelles Honorary Consul pledges solar system to La Digue home ( Following the launch of Vision 2020 by Seychelles President Michel last week, Ms. Maryvonne Pool, the Seychelles Honorary Consul in Tanzania, has pledged a complete solar power photovoltaic system for one La Digue home. This was made known during a reception hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the diplomatic community at the Expo 2020 earlier this week.

In line with President Michel's goal that the island of La Digue be designated as the eco capital of the world operating solely on renewable energy, Ms. Pool made the donation, which includes panels, inverters, and cables, as well as one solar street light, from her Tanzania-based company Sunnergy Systems PTL Solar Tanzania.

“We hope that this donation will provide valuable information on how best to provide for sustainable energy on the island while preserving its natural beauty," said Ms. Pool

“I truly believe that renewable energy is the way forward for a sustainable future for Seychelles, the region, and the world," Ms. Pool added.

Ms. Pool presented her pledge to the Minister for Foreign Affairs Mr. Jean-Paul Adam at the MFA reception hosted on March 30, who went on to thank her for her generous contribution towards achieving one of the goals of Vision 2020.

“Vision 2020 is about showing the people of Seychelles what dreams and ambitions can be achieved if we all work together. It is not simply about what the government can do for the people, but it is also about how individuals and private companies can each play their part and contribute in their various ways towards achieving this dream," said Minister Adam.

Ms. Pool, a Seychellois national, has said that provisions to send the complete system for one household have already begun, and it should be in place within three months. She added that the project should also be able to act as a test case for this ambitious and innovative project for La Digue.
