Concerns have been raised by Energy Fiji Limited after the Monasavu Dam has been experiencing below-average rainfall over the past few months from November 22nd to April 23rd.
They say these months are typically Fiji’s rainy period.
EFL also says this low rainfall has contributed to the declining dam and water level at Monasavu as well as impacted to some level the Nadarivatu hydro scheme.
They further say if this low or nil rainfall continues in the upcoming dry period from May to October, then this can lead to the Monasavu and Nadarivatu hydropower schemes to operate at critically low water level and may need to be shutdown eventually in the next few months.
EFL is encouraging people to please use electricity wisely with the objective to conserve energy during this difficult time.
