This project aims to assist the DDCW to reduce the amount spent on energy as the recent rise in the cost of electricity is impacting negatively in their already limited budget.

The DDCW is also planning on the implimentation of alternate energy (solar geysers, gas based cooking), and the team working on the project will advise on this
