WARD 31 in Luangiua of Malaita Outer Islands (MOI) had received its first project involving street -solar lighting system last week.
The project was approved by the Ward Development Committee (WDC) following a need for the community to have an improved lighting system in the community.
The street -solar light system project is the first of its kind under the leadership of elected ward Member of the Provincial Assembly (MPA) for Ward 31 John Kehosi to be installed at Luangiua village.
This means Luangiua will be the first community in Malaita to benefit from the modern street solar light system.
Speaking to the Solomon Star, Ward 31 Project Manager Manford Kelaho said two sets of street solar light systems have already been delivered to the WDC chairman Hugo Viauli.
He explained that the street solar light project will improve the community lighting system and security purposes.
He said the project is proposed to be installed along the main walkway in the community.
The street solar light system was funded by Ward 31 grant for the first quarter allocation of $15,000.
A street solar light system costs roughly about $4500.
He said the project aims to cover every part of Luangiua community.
Mr. Kelaho acknowledged the member of the Provincial Assembly for Ward 31 for working together towards implementing a very important project for Luangiua village.
