More than 80 members of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) from Brgy. San Vicente, Sto. Tomas, Batangas and their families learned more about the importance of clean and renewable energy during their recent visit to the Cleanergy Center in Makban, Laguna. The tour was hosted by AP Renewables Inc. (APRI), a wholly owned subsidiary of AboitizPower.
“Our free educational tours are anchored on our commitment to co-create communities that are safe, empowered, and sustainable. While our visitors live near our power plant, most of them are not yet aware of APRI.”
-Felino Bernardo, President and COO, APRI
APRI’s Cleanergy Center Specialist Kim Terbio added, “We are glad that our guests enjoyed their learning, especially through the center’s interactive displays.”
The tour also provided an overview of the various corporate social responsibility programs of APRI, which include scholarship offerings that are open for the community members.
“Ang dami naming natutunan dito sa Cleanergy Center at nag-enjoy kaming lahat lalung-lalo na ang mga bata. Ngayon, mas nauunawaan na namin kung para saan ang mga tubo dito sa aming lugar at kung paano nagagawa ang kuryente mula sa singaw o malinis na usok mula sa lupa (We learned a lot here at the Cleanergy Center and we really enjoyed the experience, especially the children. We now understand why we have pipes here and how electricity is generated from geothermal steam).”
-Delcy E. Abellar,Brgy. San Vicente 4Ps Leader
Since its opening in 2013, the Cleanergy Center has welcomed over 30,000 local and international visitors.
