On August 22, OKTA donated a photovoltaic plant to the Faculty for Electrical Engineering and Information Technologies (FEEIT) in Skopje. The Faculty also purchased another plant with the support of the IPA project “Improving the integration of energy storage in buildings with photovoltaics” funded by EU and cofounded by the faculty. The electricity produced by the photovoltaic plants will be used for the needs of FEIT that will give the faculty an annual savings between 3.000 and 3.5000 euros.
“By activating these photovoltaic plants, FEEIT improves the energy efficiency of its facilities and saves money from the country’s budget. With this initiative, we continue our commitment to save the environment and reduce the pollution. The first plant that has a power of 10 KW is a donation of OKTA. The second plant, acquired with our own resources and through IPA project, has a power of 12 KW and its own system for accumulating energy. Thereby, FEEIT confirms its commitment to closer cooperation with the business sector and state institutions”, said Professor Dimitar Tashkovski, Dean of FEEIT.
OKTA recently started being active in the sector for electricity production from renewables, supported the investment of FEIT in this type of technologies.
“OKTA is always ready to support innovative initiatives that increase energy efficiency and are environmentally friendly. Our donation is a solid proof that we want to participate in the renewables sector, we want to contribute and to learn. We believe that this donation will provide a tool for practical skills for the students of FEIT, who we will also assist with scholarships in this field, as we did it last year.”, stated Ioannis Geroulanos, Chief Executive Officer of OKTA.
