#GIZMoldova: Green investments at kindergarten no. 6 in Ceadir-Lunga!

With the support of #GermanCooperation and the contribution of the community, including the local diaspora, Kindergarten No. 6 in Ceadir-Lunga is becoming more energy efficient!

"The dream of energy efficiency came to life in June 2023" - as Liubovi Ciolac, project specialist at the Municipality of Ceadîr-Lunga says. Since then, the transformation has been palpable: 25 kW photovoltaic panels have been installed and will be up and running within a week, electricity cables have been replaced, and old eye-straining light bulbs have been replaced with LED bulbs, significantly helping to reduce electricity costs.
In addition, two air conditioners have been installed in the children's groups where it was colder in winter, now giving the little ones more comfortable conditions for activities.

And that's not all: after a project by a talented local young man, the kindergarten now shines in bright colours, inspiring joy and creativity. A beautiful mural has been painted on the front of the kindergarten, using resources already saved so far!
Maria Crăciun, mother of two children attending Kindergarten No. 6 in Ceadir-Lunga, shares the enthusiasm: "The children now have better conditions for activities. The classrooms are brighter and the air more pleasant, the rooms are ventilated, which has brought a positive change in the atmosphere of the group. And the drawings on the front of the kindergarten help them learn colours in a fun way."
Annual savings of tens of thousands of lei.
At the end of 2022, electricity costs amounted to 138,000 lei. With the implementation of the project, these costs will decrease by approx. 44%, leading to annual savings of about 60,000 lei.
These savings will make the kindergarten more energy sustainable, but will also contribute to the development of the institution, improving the quality of services offered to children.
The energy efficiency of the kindergarten no. 6 is just one of the projects with which the municipality of Ceadir-Lunga is part of the achievement of the climate objectives assumed as a signatory of the European initiative Covenant of Mayors for Energy and Climate. Through such investments the municipality achieves the ambitious targets of 30% reduction of CO2 levels set in the Local Action Plan for Energy and Climate.
The municipality of Ceadir-Lunga is a beneficiary of the DAR 1+3 programme, implemented with the financial support of the German government. The activity took place in the framework of the project "Energy Resilient Communities for Moldova with the support of diaspora and native associations", implemented by AEER, in partnership with the Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy in Moldova.
It is carried out in the framework of the project "Policy Advisory Fund", funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and implemented by GIZ Moldova.
