CitySavings Gumaca branch goes solar

City Savings Bank opened its first ever solar-powered branch located in Gumaca, Quezon. The solar panel system aims to cut the electricity bill of the branch while promoting a cleaner and greener environment.

A 7.5 KW solar thin film flexi system was installed on the roof sheets of the branch which

harnesses the sun’s energy and turns it into electricity. Based on 2015 records, a typical City Savings Bank branch has an average of 1,900 kilowatt-hour of electrical energy consumption per month. The solar power generator in Gumaca branch can produce an estimated 1125 kilowatt-hours of power per month with at least 5 hours of sunlight.

In choosing renewable energy, CitySavings Gumaca branch was not only able to lower their power consumption but also contributed towards a reduced carbon footprint that hopefully mitigates the effects of climate change.
