106,000 CFL bulbs set to arrive in Caraga region

Butuan City (4 May) -- Northeastern Mindanao (Caraga region) is set to receive anytime next week 106,000 compact fluorescent lamps or CFLs, official said Tuesday.

Horacio T. Santos, general manager of Agusan del Norte Electric Cooperative (ANECO), said the first batch for deployment of CFL bulbs will initially be distributed to six electric cooperatives in Northeastern Mindanao.

"The primary objective in using CFL bulbs is actually to reduce peak load power demand through the implementation of energy efficiency initiatives," Santos said.

"It also helps our electric consuming public reduce their power consumption, particularly in today's financial and economic difficulties," he added.

Last week, the Department of Energy (DoE), National Electrification Administration (NEA) and electric cooperatives from Northeastern and Northern Mindanao regions signed a memorandum of agreement on the use of CFLs at the Moresco-1 Training Center, Laguindingan, Misamis Oriental.

"The Philippine Energy Efficiency Project (PEEP) is being implemented by the DoE with support from the Asian Development Bank (ADB).

The project also aimed at plummeting green house gas and energy consumption.

The three main key outputs of the PEEP include efficient lighting initiative, efficiency initiatives in buildings and industries and communication and social mobilization.

The project totals to $ 46.5 million, of which $ 14 million was given by the Philippine government as contribution to this particular undertaking.

Santos concluded that CFL bulbs will also alleviate the consuming public on the power hike.

"We are doing our very best to help our electric consuming public," he added. (muc/PIA-Caraga) [top]
