Over 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 visit to the Cleanergy Center in Makban, Laguna. The tour was hosted by AP Renewables Inc. (APRI), a wholly owned subsidiary of AboitizPower.
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.
-Delcy E. Abellar, Brgy. San Vicente 4Ps Leader
“Our free educational tours are anchored on our commitment to co-create communities that are safe, empowered, and sustainable,” said APRI president and COO Felino Bernardo. “While our visitors live near our power plant, most of them are not yet aware of 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. Since its opening in 2013, the Cleanergy Center has welcomed over 30,000 local and international visitors.
