Tech company donates solar streetlamps

INTERNATIONAL powerhouse solutions company 888 Tech Exchange Ventures Inc. recently donated solar streetlamps to the local government of Mandaue City, Cebu.

The donation was acknowledged by Mayor Jonas Cortes at the city’s 50th Charter Day Anniversary on Aug. 30, 2019.

Cortes conveyed the local government’s gratitude to Florendo Nograles and Mike Merla, 888 Tech Exchange president and sales manager, respectively.

The 160-watt streetlamps will be used to illuminate a part of P. Gomez St. Installation of these lights will bring about some savings in electric power costs for the local government.

In Cebu, 888 Tech Exchange has installed solar streetlamps at Shangri-la’s Mactan Resort and Spa in Lapu-Lapu City and Pulchra Resort in San Fernando, Cebu.

Solar energy has become popular in recent years due to its innate advantage as a renewable power source and potential in reducing dependence on fossil fuels and greenhouse gas emissions.

The 888 Tech Exchange Ventures Inc. is one of the Philippines’s top photovoltaic system integrators with nine years of experience in system installation. It also leads in distribution and installation of cybersecurity equipment, wireless battery monitoring systems and numerous industrial brands from Asia, USA, Europe and Australia. It has expanded its business to Australia and Hongkong as well.

The donation to the Mandaue City Government was part of 888 Tech’s community partnership initiatives. The company has also sustained similar initiatives with other partner government units, private organizations and non-profit institutions.
