Prempeh College: 1995 Year group constructs 850 Watts Solar lighting system for the school

solar-lightsIn commemoration of its 20th anniversary, The SSS 1995 year group of Prempeh College will be commissioning an 850 Watts Solar lighting system at Prempeh College on Saturday 26th September, 2015 to help light -up all the teaching and learning facilities at the school.

The decision to embark on the project was motivated by the recent power crisis which has bedeviled the country.

Teachers and Student had bemoaned the negative impact the power crisis is having on academic work at the School and called on alumni to help.

The school spends a lot of money to light- up the classrooms block during evening ‘prep’ hours to enable students to study at night. The solar lighting system will therefore help the school save money on electricity even when the energy crisis are over. Those savings, would be directed to other areas to enhance teaching and learning.

The group believes that government alone cannot be saddled with all the burdens of development and maintenance of schools and deem it prudent to step in to help their alma mater.

The Cost of the Project
The entire project which includes a five year service contract with the supplier cost the year group GHC 40,000. It was financed through voluntary contributions by the group members in Ghana and the diaspora.

Event Date: 26th September, 2015
Venue: Osae Assembly Hall, Prempeh College
Time: 9am
