The Salamon Group and DayStar Technologies are working under a contract with the Samoan government in order to bring renewable energy to the forefront in the island nation. Sunlogics Power, a division of Salamon Group, and DayStar’s Eco Energy Solutions along with the government and Electrical Power Corporation (EPC) have been working to get Samoa’s first private power generating license to start the companies mandate in the country.
Samoa is making a strong push to become one of the South Pacific’s most “solarized” nations by reducing carbon emissions with a 4MW solar plant, which will be introduced this year. The first phase of the project is funded, in whole, by a private investment.
Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi, said, "This transaction creates significant sustainable value for our country. Samoa is committed to reducing our carbon footprint. The Government of Samoa is a committed global partner in carbon emission reductions. The structure created by Mr. Matvieshen (of Sunlogics) and Mr. Yost (CEO of Eco ventures), with the approval and great assistance of their local partners and the various Government Departments, in Samoa is excellent and a win for all stakeholders. We are enthusiastically looking forward to working together with the Sunlogics team."
