SNAP-Magat supports school solar roof project in Ramon, Isabela

SN Aboitiz Power-Magat (SNAP-Magat) turned over and switch-on rooftop solar panels with a capacity of 3.3KW to Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo National High School (GEANHS) on February 21, 2024. The project was a collaboration between the school’s General Parent-Teacher-Community Association (GPTCA) and SNAP-Magat volunteers.

SNAP-Magat’s Assistant Vice President and Plant Manager, Daryl Homer Ramos, said the donation could save the school around Php 5,000 per month from electric consumption, directing potential savings toward supporting the school’s 800 staff and students combined. GEANHS is one of the biggest public schools in Ramon, Isabela. “By supporting our communities and promoting sustainable practices, we remain true to our mission to energize a sustainable future,” he added.

With power from a renewable and sustainable source to supplement their electricity requirements, both school management and students can now be relieved of concerns regarding power outages. The GPTCA purchased solar batteries and inverters while SNAP-Magat volunteers have committed to providing installation and maintenance support to ensure the optimal functioning of the solar panels.

This initiative not only underscores SNAP-Magat and GEANHS dedication to sustainable development but also aligns with the United Nation’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, particularly in supporting goals related to quality education and affordable, clean energy.
