Angeles City takes lead in solar power transition

ANGELES CITY – In a bid towards sustainability, Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin, Jr. has announced the city’s plan to embrace solar power, beginning with the installation of solar panels in government offices.

Mayor Lazatin’s initiative aims to reduce the city’s carbon footprint and promote clean energy solutions. 

“We are committed to embracing renewable energy sources and reducing our reliance on fossil fuels,” Mayor Lazatin said, highlighting the significance of protecting the environment and taking proactive steps towards a greener future.

The first phase of the said plan will involve equipping government-owned buildings, facilities, and streetlights with solar panels. By harnessing the power of sunlight and converting it into clean electricity, Angeles City seeks to not only save on energy expenses but also contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable community.

Mayor Lazatin furthered that the transition to solar power will bring numerous benefits to the city – by significantly reducing air pollution and dependence on non-renewable energy sources, Angeles City will lead the way in environmental stewardship. Moreover, the cost savings resulting from reduced energy expenses can be redirected to vital sectors such as education and healthcare, ultimately benefiting the residents.

To ensure a seamless transition, the city will collaborate with renewable energy experts and private partners, aiming to implement the solar power initiative effectively and efficiently.

This move sets Angeles City apart as a frontrunner in renewable energy adoption, inspiring other nearby towns and cities to follow suit. 

The shift towards solar power aligns with global efforts to combat climate change and emphasizes the city’s commitment to a sustainable future.
