“Green Power” for the Romani in Transylvania

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 6 settembre 2011

Memmingen, 05.09.2011 Solar energy distributors Phaesun GmbH from Memmingen/Germany have accomplished the “Green Power” project in August 2011 together with the initiative “Students in Free Enterprise” (short: SIFE) launched by the University of Regensburg. The project supports the Romani population in Romania providing 30 households in the villages Rosia, Nou and Daia in Transylvania with PicoPV systems for off-grid power supply. Phaesun donated the PicoPV systems. They provide a reliable electrical illumination and the possibility to load mobile phones and operate other small electrical applications. The SIFE students have been trained in the installation and reparation of the systems by Phaesun and immediately passed their knowledge on to the local project management inRomania where they could also practise their skills on the spot.
The project partners in Romania include the local administration, the author Eginald Schlattner, as well as two students from Rosia majoring in electrical engineering who are now able to finance their studies by a scholarship and the operation of a charging station. They are responsible for the proper functioning of the systems in the villages and operate central charging stations in grocery stores where households without electricity can reload their mobile phones and lamps with integrated batteries at a small charge.
Phaesun GmbH based in Memmingen/Germany has been specialising in the sale, service and installation of Off-Grid photovoltaic and wind power systems since it was founded in 2001. As one of the world’s leading system integrators of Off-Grid energy systems, Phaesun offers products of all reputable manufacturers in this trade. International project management, purposeful training courses for customers and technical support complete the range of services offered. Phaesun holds a subsidiary in France and can fall back on a worldwide partner and distribution network.
SIFE stands for Students In Free Enterprise and means an international organisation of students which tries to link social commitment with entrepreneurial activity. Since 2009, the SIFE group of the University of Regensburg has been mainly active in Eastern Europe.
