RE-Powering Up Communities


Beyond the Hour Programme


December 11, 2015

With the aim of reducing the long-term increase in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and dependence on fossil fuels by successfully introducing solar lighting and power systems to replace diesel and kerosene generators, WWF-Philippines is partnering with the local government unit of the Municipality of Quezon in Palawan to promote the use of renewable energy in key areas.

Together with Philips, a solar lighting project is being piloted in Sidanao Island and opens the possibility of installing more solar power sources to other off-grid areas.

Sidanao Island or Nakoda Island is a sitio of Barangay Panitian, with an estimated land area of about 30 hectares. It is astride the Tabon Caves complex and can be reached via a 40-minute pump boat ride from the Poblacion Wharf, or a 10-minute banca ride from the Tabon Caves. WWF hopes it can be a model for small-scale energy independence.
