Six companies exhibit solar products at DOE headquarters

MANILA, Dec. 11 (PNA) — For the 2014 Solar Expo, six companies have exhibited their solar products at the Department of Energy (DOE) headquarters Thursday.

In a statement Thursday, the DOE said the exhibit was participated in by six companies namely Trademaster Resources Corporation, Transnational Uyeno Solar Corporation, Star 8 Solar Philippines, Solaric Philippines, Propmech Corporation and One Renewable Energy Enterprise Inc.

The agency stressed it aims to provide a venue for photovoltaic companies to promote their products and services.

Aside from the company promotion, the DOE aims to educate government office and Local Government Units (LGUs) on the current available solar technologies.

National Energy Consciousness Month Chairperson, Assistant Secretary Jose Raymund A. Acol, said the DOE will always find solutions to assist in the propagation of Renewable Energy (RE) technologies like solar to be reached by a wider audience.

Acol noted the DOE has previously been involved in three Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) signings between schools and companies, to ensure that the two parties perform their obligations to pay and to maintain the panels.

The schools are La Consolacion College, Manuel L. Quezon University and St. Scholastica’s College in Manila.

Moreover, Acol stressed their utilization of solar related products such as the Household Electrification Program (HEP).

The DOE was tasked to accelerate the development and utilization of RE technologies, through the Renewable Energy Law of 2008. (PNA)
