Solar LEDs to light tuna landing site in Camarines Sur
MetadataShow full item record
The Municipality of San Jose, Philips Electric and Lighting Inc. plus the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF-Philippines) signed a formal partnership to illuminate San Jose Port, a tuna landing site, using solar-powered LED lights. The signing was held during the municipality’s Fishers’ Day, which saw local fisherfolk take part in a fishing competition and a cook-off as part of the annual weeklong town fiesta. The solar-powered system will store power generated from the sun during the day, and will power energy-efficient LEDs to illuminate fish landing activities in the San Jose Port by night.
