Manila Being Lighted with Solar Lights
Manila officials have turned to solar powered Light Emitting Diodes (LED) streetlights to cut down on energy consumption as they continue to find ways to settle the city's more than Php 600 million electricity debt. Mayor Erap and the South Korean investor Moon Pill Jong, chief exec. officer of Global Gold Goal Inc. led the ceremonial lighting of the first 10 units of the solar powered LED streetlights with CCTV and LED signboards in Rajah Sulayman Park, Roxas Blvd. the other night. The event not only sealed the deal between Manila officials and Korean businessmen but also gave hope for the city that it would be able to meet it's electricity expenses and improve the attractiveness of the area commonly frequented by the tourist. Starting this month up to February 50 units of the streetlights will be installed in Espana, 20 in Blumentritt and 10 in P. Sanchez St. in Sta. Mesa Manila. A total of 10,000 units of solar powered LED streetlights will be installed in 2 years with a total cost of Php 2.2 Billion with no cost to the City of Manila. The streetlights also feature CCTV cameras to monitor criminal activities.
