Group brings emergency power supply to evacuation centers
MANILA, Philippines – As Typhoon Ruby (international name: Hagupit) made landfall on Saturday, December 6, local governments began moving their residents from coastal areas to evacuation centers.
Not all centers, however, are well-equipped. So a project dubbed as "Light up Hope for Ruby" provides disaster-ready solar pv 50-watts systems for lighting and charging communication gadgets and other devices.
Project EnKindle, which was established in 2013 as a response to the needs of communities affected by Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan), aims to promote renewable energy technologies.
It stresses that these services should be cost-efficient and environment-friendly. Such alternatives can offset the use of fossil fuels.
The project is also looking for logistical support for the deployment of equipment. Fill up the form here to report evacuation centers that need power supply.
