Taguig City – PNOC Renewables Corporation advances its renewable energy projects with government offices as it inaugurates its first solar rooftop installation at the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Electronic Data Processing Center (BSP EDPC) building in Manila. This project is expected to generate a 200-kilowatt peak of electricity from solar power, which will supply a portion of the buildings’ energy demands.
The inauguration was attended by Governor Armando M. Tetangco Jr., members of the BSP’s Monetary Board and other executives of the organization. For its part, the Department of Energy was represented by Undersecretary Jesus Cristino P. Posadas, Undersecretary Benito L. Ranque and Mr. Arnie Zabala of DOE Renewable Energy Management Bureau (REMB). The Vice President for Operations, Engr. Pete L. Lite and OIC-Vice President for Corporate Services, Atty. Josephine Cassandra Cui and the Board of Directors were among the executives representing PNOC RC.
The solar rooftop installation is just first of the many installations that BSP and PNOC RC envision. Governor Tetangco during the inauguration said that “given its environmental and cost benefits, BSP is committed to work with PNOC RC for the installation of solar facilities in other parts of the BSP System – the regional offices and branches, Security Plant Complex in Quezon City as well as the PICC – the Philippine International Convention Center, which happens to be owned by the Bangko Sentral.” PNOC RC looks forward to a greener future with the help of partner government agencies.
