BACOOR CITY, Cavite – The local government unit (LGU) announced on Monday (January 25) the conversion of the Bacoor Government Center into a solar-powered building.
The conversion is expected to make the city hall more environment-friendly and help save around P600,000 in energy bills per year. The move to innovate the city hall is in line with the LGU’s goal to be a premiere business hub south of Metro Manila
“I’m really excited to use this renewable energy because first of all, it does not cause harm to the people and to the environment,” Mayor Lani Revilla said. “Second, talagang malaki ang matitipid nito sa kuryente namin in the long run (Second, we can save a lot on energy bills in the long run),” she added.
The city government teamed up with Meralco and Spectrum to install solar panels that provide power to the building. The city government plans to allocate its monthly electric bill savings on other public service projects.
