Continuing its pledge to help rebuild the communities ravaged by super typhoon Yolanda, global technology innovator LG Electronics installed LG Solar Panels in the areas of Tacloban.
LG Philippines’ managing director Sung Woo Nam visited the areas and facilitated the safe and strategic installation of the solar panels. The use of solar power can do the following: light 40 LED bulbs for nine hours; activate 30 mobile charger units for 24 hours; and switch on five LED TVs for five hours.
Whereas, LGEPH employees in Manila packed relief goods and instead gathered to make their own contributions instead of celebrating their 25th anniversary with a grand Christmas party.
“It has been over a month since Yolanda hit the nation, and it is disheartening to see how much Tacloban is still in need of help,” Mr. Nam shared. “Even with the outpour of generosity and kindness from the rest of the world, there is still a lot that needs to be done. We are hoping that the electricity-generating LG Solar Panels will be able to shine a bit of light on their lives.”
The installation of LG Solar Panels was achieved in cooperation with the Department of Energy. Installation areas in Tacloban include Tolosa Elementary School and Tanauan High School.
