100kW Solar Rooftop Project Inauguration
The Philippine National Oil Corporation – Renewables Corporation together with the Department of Energy leads in the inauguration of the 100kW Solar Rooftop Project at the Philippine Heart Center in East Avenue, Quezon City.
Among those present in the ceremonies were DOE Secretary Zenaida Y. Monsada, PHC President Dr. Manuel Chua-Chiaco, PNOC RC President Carlos Jose P. Gatmaitan, Former DOE Secretary Carlos Jericho L. Petilla and Hon. Heherson Alvarez of the Climate Change Commission. PNOC RC Pres. Gatmaitan lauded the project as a landmark program that will motivate others to follow the trend and ensure that private and public institutions will support the RE initiatives of the government.
PNOC RC is dedicated and committed to pursue its mandate and support the campaign. “It is through these kind of projects that we promote the unity of various sectors in pursuing a common vision for a more sustainable country… We hope to replicate this to more institutions.” said Pres. Gatmaitan.
The partnership of the Philippine Heart Center with the PNOC RC was signed last May 12 in support of the thrust of the then Sec. Petilla which is to promote the utilization of renewable, clean and green energy sources such as solar power.
This is the first of PNOC-RC’s several Solar PV Rooftop projects which will include other government agencies such as Department of Environment and Natural Resources Envi Management Bureau and eventually working with other government agencies.
