Solar LEDs to light tuna landing site CamSur
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. May is also the Month of the Ocean in the Philippines by virtue of Presidential Proclamation No. 57 signed in 1999 by then President Joseph Estrada. The initiative was made possible through a grant from the Sustainable Energy Project Support (SEPS) WISIONS for Sustainability of the Germany-based Wuppertal Institute.
