ZAMBOANGA DEL SUR, Philippines (Mindanao Examiner / Dec. 12, 2007) – Hundreds of villagers in the southern Filipino province of Zamboanga del Sur are expected to benefit from solar energy that will be used to power their homes.

The installations of the solar home energy system will benefit at least 76 families, mostly farmer-beneficiaries of the Agrarian Reform Communities of the Department of Agrarian Reform in the town of Dumingag in San Miguel town, said lawyer Glenn Sabijon, provincial DAR chief.

“These solar home energy systems will provide lighting services to households through solar energy, particularly those in far flung villages, which has no electricity,” he said.

The Philippine Information Agency said the project is under the Solar Power Technology Support or SPOTS, which also provides income-generating activities for the farmers to be able to pay the operating and maintenance costs of each solar home energy system for only P220 a month. (Bong Lanipa)
