The race to go carbon neutral begins
MAKATI CITY – Another Makati building chooses to go all out with solar energy in the Philippines. This low-carbon facility is situated within the Makati business district. When the property owners first constructed the residential apartment building, they worried about the high cost of electricity. That’s when they started discovering how to save on energy and utility costs with solar panels. They asked friends and colleagues and decided to choose the household name in rooftop solar in the Philippines.
A 20 kWp Grid Tied solar panel system was installed. The solar provider delivered a turnkey solution from engineering to design to procurement to installation. “The solar system cost the entrepreneurs Php1.4 Million,” said Armee Cordero, Property Management Head of the building. “The investment pays off, because the solar system powers the Admin expenses, including the elevator, water pumps, lights, aircon, pati Admin office. Mga 32k ang savings sa monthly bill dahil sa solar.”
“We are happy that we make a difference to the environment and the planet,” said one of the building partners. “I believe in green lifestyles. I am an enthusiast of green building designs and I share the world vision in a carbon negative future.”
“The Philippines should line up among all the other nations that envision a sustainable future. We are one of the most severely devastated by weather situations and climate change. We are one of the most vulnerable. Look at all these typhoons, and now, even earthquakes,” said one of the building tenants. “It’s 2019 and we have very clear motivation to act.”
Climate and weather scientists and specialists claim that the trend will continue for the planet, because of the continuing global warming. Nations all over the world are plotting and planning on how to reduce carbon emissions and enter more renewable and sustainable ways of living. “There is only one solution,” says Mike De Guzman, President of Solaric Corp. “We have to incorporate and execute RE (renewable energy) generation plans. Period.”
Cities all over the world are hopping aboard with managing the effects of climate change. People are taking action. Leaders of various countries have vowed to make all homes or all buildings carbon neutral by 2030 or by 2050. The direction to go zero carbon exists. The implementation plans are in place, as we continue to battle hotter, more humid summers.
“It is not impossible. It is not a lack of willpower or direction or resources,” he emphasized. “It is, however, a lack of collaboration.”
