CEBU CITY- The Department of Energy (DOE) will bring to the Visayas its “E-Power Mo” campaign as part of its commitment to empower energy consumers and stakeholders in the country.
Through “E-Power Mo,” the DOE hopes that people in the Visayas can avail of vital information about recent developments in the energy sector, including, but not limited to policies, programs, and plans.
“We will empower energy consumers and stakeholders through education on their energy options so that they can make informed choices,” DOE Secretary Alfonso Cusi said during the opening of the Energy Investment Forum and Stakeholders Conference at the Marco Polo Plaza Hotel here.
“E-Power Mo” serves as President Rodrigo Duterte’s energy policy agenda with the following objectives: to develop and utilize the energy resources available to Filipinos for wealth creation and global competition (E-Power Mo); undertake safety and savings measures through energy efficiency (E-Safety Mo); secure the delivery of quality, reliable and affordable energy services (E-Secure Mo); and empower consumers through a wide range of options in utilizing conventional, renewable and alternative energy sources (E-Diskarte Mo).
“Why we are here? We are here as part of our intensified information and education campaign. It’s intensified because we gathered all stakeholders from different energy sectors,” DOE Undersecretary Felix William Fuentebella said.
“We in the DOE are intensifying our dissemination of program and activities. We like to ensure sustainable, stable, secure and sufficient accessible and affordable supply of power in propelling energy development,” DOE-Visayas Director Antonio Labios, for his part, said.
The DOE also launched the documentary “Lampara ng Pangarap” which tackles options in coping with energy poverty using alternative energy technology and solutions. (PNA)
