THE Department of Energy (DoE) recently turned over 150 units of e-tricycles to the city government of Muntilupa through Mayor Jaime Fresnedi at the Muntinlupa Sports Complex in Bgy. Tunasan.
The turnover ceremony highlighted the effort of the DoE to promote energy-efficient and alternative technologies in the transport sector.
“The DoE is consistent in its drive of enhancing the energy users’ power of choice. This is our way of encouraging the use of environmentally-friendly transportation services, like the e-trike,” Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi stated.
Last June, the DoE and the mayors of the cities of Las Piñas, Muntinlupa, Pateros and Valenzuela signed a memorandum of agreement on the donation of e-trikes at the DoE headquarters.
Muntinlupa City is the first of the four cities in NCR to receive the e-trikes from the DOE.
