GENSET HYBRID SYSTEM. I've just been floored by Syed Akbar Ali's A Message for the Ministry of Education. Parents are having to cough up too much to educate their children these days. Something Muhyiddin Yassin, our Education Minister and DPM, must urgently address or else we all die standing.
But here is some GOOD NEWS in the meantime.
Muhyiddin is about to get something VERY right with regards to schools (as against education). At the end of the month, remote schools that are run by diesel-powered generators will be provided with hybrid gensets which are more energy-efficient, environmentally friendly and cheaper. Trial runs involving several schools in Sarawak show that the government could save at least RM100,000 a year per school. Some schools saved more than RM300,000 a year.
Total expected savings under the scheme = OVER RM1 BILLION A YEAR!
The GenSet Hybrid System is homegrown, from R & D to manufacturing to system integration. It marries JKR and private sector companies.
