Father of late Kacey writes touching tribute for late daughter

Jason Sciberras, the father of Kacey, who tragically died on the Central Link Road in Attard early on Sunday morning, released a touching social media tribute in honour of his late daughter. 

‘Our flower. You were a flower with the name of Kacey. You were a beautiful flower both inside and outside’ said Jason. 

‘You were a flower who knew how to love. You were a flower full of respect. You were a flower with a smile always on your face.’

‘Now our flower has joined other flowers with the Lord. I, your father, your mother, your brother, your grandmother and all those who loved you will keep loving you until we meet again’ he finished. 

Kacey was riding passenger in a Chevrolet Aveo, which the driver reportedly lost control of and damaged its front and rear whilst also hitting a wall and a pole. 

Kacey was reported dead on the spot, with two others, a 17 year old girl and a 20 year old man seriously injured.

65,000 households worth of energy generated by solar panels in 2022

65,000 households worth of energy generated by solar panels in 2022

Last year, photovoltaic panels in Malta generated a total of 284,600MWh, which is the equivalent of the energy consumption of 65,000 houses in one year. 

This also means that 108,500 tonnes of less carbon dioxide emissions were released into Maltese air. This was revealed by Environment, Energy and Enterprise Minister Miriam Dalli in response to a parliamentary question. 

Minister Dalli also explained how there was the potential to generate around 355,200MWh, which is a 70,600MWh difference between the potential and what was actually generated. 

Explaining the potential reason behind the difference, the minister attributed this to the possible degradation of panels throughout the years, a lack of maintenance and/or natural variations in sunlight hours.
