Mer­alco con­tin­ues its sup­port in Re­new­able En­ergy by part­ner­ing with the As­so­ci­a­tion of City/Mu­nic­i­pal Elec­tri­cal Engi­neers & Elec­tri­cians of the Philip­pines (ACMEEE) for the So­lar Pho­to­voltaic (PV) Ca­pac­ity Build­ing

Sem­i­nar held re­cently at the QCX Mu­seum in Que­zon City. This is the sec­ond leg of the knowl­edge-shar­ing event where Mer­alco led the ses­sions aimed at ed­u­cat­ing engi­neers and in­spec­tors of lo­cal govern­ment units (LGUs) on the lat­est So­lar PV tech­nolo­gies and in­spec­tion pro­to­cols (based on the 2014 edi­tion of the Na­tional Elec­tri­cal Code). Rep­re­sent­ing their LGUs were lo­cal engi­neers and in­spec­tors from Que­zon City, Pasig, Marik­ina, An­tipolo, as well as other mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties of the Rizal Prov­ince. Pre­vi­ously, LGU rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Makati, Taguig, Parañaque, Las Piñas and Muntinlupa also took part in a sim­i­lar sem­i­nar. Mer­alco in­tends to en­gage all LGUs within its fran­chise area to bring for­ward cus­tomer safety and grid sta­bil­ity by cas­cad­ing vi­tal in­for­ma­tion about so­lar in­stal­la­tions.
