As part of the SecuRE Negros campaign, the provincial government of Negros Occidental is handing over its solar panels and water pumps to three partner organizations.

SecuRE Negros campaign was established to champion the use of renewable energy (RE) in the province.

During the turnover ceremony, Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson mentioned that the transfer of the RE power systems to the recipients was intended for use within their respective areas.

The beneficiaries of this campaign were the GAID Mambugsay Integrated Social Forestry Project Minority Association, which received a single 1-HP surface pump and five 550-watt (W) solar panels, and the Negros Economic Development Foundation (NEDF), which received four pieces of 550 W solar panels with inverter and accessories.

University of St. La Salle Training Farm also secured a unit of 3HP submersible pump as well as eight units of 550 W solar panels with accessories.

“When we chose the partners to receive these, we were very conscious of the fact that they must represent our everyday people, who are often left out in top-down development processes,” said Lacson.

Aside from the three organizations, Ara-al Elementary School Nailab Extension also received a set of RE systems donated by Negros Island Solar Power, Inc.

“It is my hope that with the savings you achieve from the use of these RE power systems, you will be able to channel the funds to more productive uses directly benefiting the people that you serve,” added Lacson.
