Tebara Transport Limited is in the process of introducing electric buses into the country and will convert some of their current buses to become electric buses.
This has been confirmed by Tebara’s Transport CEO Arvind Maharaj who says that they have already secured a bus which will be brought in for trial and they are working with the Government in getting it in to the country.
Maharaj says that the plan is to get the first 20 electric buses from China by next year and another 20 to be brought in afterwards.
He also says that these Buses will be battery charged and they will be relying on the use of solar energy for charging rather than taking up a lot of electricity from Energy Fiji Limited’s Grids.
Maharaj adds that transport is the biggest emitter of carbon emission in the world and the transport industry in Fiji has pledged to support the 53 member states of the Commonwealth to limit global warming to below 1.5 degree Celsius.ADVERTISEMENT Listen to the latest news on our 5 radio stations Legend FM, Viti FM, Radio Sargam, FM96 and Navtarang.
