In a heartwarming ceremony, EFS Revision Energy Sdn. Bhd (EFS) in collaboration with the Rotary Club of Kuala Lumpur DiRaja (RCKLD), handed over a new solar PV system to the BRDB Rotary Children’s Residence (BRCR) which marks a major step towards sustainability and compassionate care. Nestled on a hill at Seri Kembangan, BRCR is home to 70 abandoned or vulnerable children with its operations funded by public donations.
EFS, renowned for our commercial and residential solar initiatives in the international market, was chosen by RCKLD to spearhead the installation of the solar PV system at BRCR with the primary goal of reducing electricity bills and embracing clean energy. Unlike profit-driven endeavours, this project was awarded by RCKLD through the recognition of EFS’s mission of democratising renewable energy adoption across various sectors and driving positive social impact. The project of solarising BRCR was successfully completed in early July 2023 and is estimated to reduce electricity bills by 40%.
Tan Sri Datuk Seri Panglima Dr. Lee Lam Thye, spokesperson and Honorary Advisor of EFS, expressed gratitude for the company being chosen as the “Green Partner” for this endeavour. “This project is not merely about harnessing solar power. It’s also about the spirit of volunteerism and a testament to EFS’s commitment to social and environmental responsibility”, Tan Sri Lee remarked passionately. Beyond the solar initiative, EFS is also committed to a sponsorship of RM50,000 to BRCR. Tan Sri Lee also pledged of a portion of the sales of his book, Call Lee Lam Thye – Recalling a Lifetime of Service, to BRCR. According to Datuk Chan Kam Fatt, Exco Chairman of BRCR, operational costs have always been a concern for the home, which relies on the generosity from the public.
During the ceremony, Datuk Chan was acknowledged for his unwavering dedication, alongside Dr. Amir Izwan as the Current President of RCKLD and Past President Ajit Johl, in their collaborative fundraising efforts for BRCR. Principal Adib, teachers, chefs and the rest of the BRCR team were also lauded for their ceaseless endeavours in ensuring the welfare of the children.
The solar PV system is a significant step forward for BRCR in reducing the reliance on non-renewable energy, saving money, and becoming more sustainable.
