Buskowitz Energy provides Solar Power to Schools with the Sun
SUSTAINABLE solutions enterprise Buskowitz Energy aspires to create a low carbon future for the generations to come. With this vision the company, which specializes in rooftop solar photovoltaic installations, hopes to continue its efforts to help schools transition to renewable energy and harness the power of the sun.
Buskowitz Energy’s first foray into the educational sector and first installation was at the John B. Lacson Foundation in Molo, Iloilo. The 71.40 kilowatt-peak project was only the start, as today a total of 2.10 megawatts has been installed across 16 colleges and universities nationwide.
Properties in the provinces include:
- John B. Lacson Foundation in Bacolod (126.09 kilowatt-peak) and Arevalo (99.83 kilowatt-peak);
- St. Therese MTC College in Iloilo specifically their branches in La Fiesta (194 kilowatt-peak), La Paz (76.70 kilowatt-peak), and Tigbauan (45.76 kilowatt-peak);
- Universidad de Zamboanga’s Laboratory (65.45 kilowatt-peak), High School (99.83 kilowatt-peak), City Campus (200 kilowatt-peak), and Summit building (120.36 kilowatt-peak) have all been outfitted with rooftop solar photovoltaic installations;
- University of Iloilo (99.90 kilowatt-peak).
Other colleges who have also invested in clean energy are Jose Maria College in Davao del Sur and the College of St. John in Roxas city with a 99.90 kilowatt-peak and 45.24 kilowatt-peak system powering their schools respectively.
In Metro Manila, Arellano Law Foundation in Pasay city has taken steps to go solar with a 300.30 kilowatt-peak capacity.
Soon to join the green initiative with Buskowitz Energy are the St. Paul University in Tugeugarao city with a 432.20 kilowatt-peak installation, and the PHINMA Araullo University in Cabanatuan city, which will transition to utilizing solar power with a 124.23 kilowatt-peak.
Schools going Solar
Chief Executive Officer James Buskowitz strongly advocates the importance of going solar in local schools across the country.
He shares that, “It is the small steps we take to provide a quality education that will have a larger impact on the generations to come. It is their basic right, but often cost factors into its accessibility and availability. If more schools adopt solar power, then perhaps in the long run, we’ll see those savings go into better services, lower costs, and create green-conscious leaders who will help shape the future.”
At the end of the day, the benefits of harnessing the power of the sun goes beyond lowering costs. Sustainability is the true bottom line and sustainable development is the common future, where the needs of this generation must be met without compromising the needs and growth of future generations.
