SELIȘTE COMMUNE, NISPORENI DISTRICT, ENTERED THE TOP OF THE BEST LOCAL ENERGY INITIATIVES IN 2023!

#GiZMoldova: Seliște commune, Nisporeni district, entered the top of the best local energy initiatives in 2023.
The award for the category "Best energy efficiency project in the street lighting sector, including renewable energy sources" was presented at the "EcoEnergetic Moldova" Gala 2023.

With the support of the German Government through #GermanCooperation, with the involvement of the diaspora and local people, and with the contribution of the Government of Moldova, the municipality of Seliste, managed to reduce by 100% the electricity consumption for lighting the parks, thanks to solar lanterns powered by photovoltaic panels.

Until the project, the commune's parks were not lit at all, says Ion Popescu, mayor of Seliște.
"The villagers have better living conditions and the town hall has zero electricity costs in this case. At the same time, LED bulbs with photovoltaic panels do not release carbon emissions, do not contain mercury and are an environmentally friendly and sustainable solution for street lighting," says Ana Fonaru, a resident of Seliște.

"Now children and grown-ups alike can safely walk in the parks and young people can enjoy cultural and sports activities, even in the evening. This will motivate them to spend less time in front of their computers and phones."
"We are more protected when we go to parks in the evening, because it is not dark there. From now on, we will have more useful activities, and not just on the village's feast day", says Lilia Macovei, another resident of Seliște.

Seliște commune 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.

The activity takes place 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.
