Leading the Transition to Clean Energy

On August 19, 2011 no less than the President of the Philippines, Benigno Simeon Aquino III, led the official switch-on of new energy efficient park lights in Baguio City, Burnham Park Complex. The city is considered the Summer Capital of the Philippines and the park is one of its most popular tourist destinations.


The retrofitting of the park lights was implemented under the Public Lighting Component of the Philippine Energy Efficiency Project (PEEP) which is being funded through a combination of a loan and grant from the Asian Development Bank and implemented with the support of the IIEC. The objective is to demonstrate and promote energy savings through the adoption of efficient lighting technologies for public lighting. This includes replacement of 160W mercury vapor lamps with 70W high pressure sodium vapor lamps and the replacement of 358W decorative lamps with 15W bollard type compact fluorescent lamps.


Total energy savings are expected to reach 293.4 MWh per year equivalent to a total monetary savings of P2,934,000 or US$68,200 per year. With a project cost of about P6,400,000 or US$148,800, payback period is estimated to be 2.5 years and emission reduction is estimated at 158.4 tons of carbon dioxide (tCO2) per year.
