ILIGAN City — During the Flag Raising Ceremony of City government officials and employees at Anahaw Amphitheatre, Buhanginan Hill, this city on Monday, PowerSource Philippines Energy. Inc. (PPEI) formally turned over an ambulance and a firetruck it donated to the local government.

In his message, Arthur Bernabe, Assistant Plant Manager of PPEI, said the donation is one of the gestures of their company in its desire to be a partner of the local government in progress and development.

He mentioned that they built their steam power generating plant here because investors would be attracted to a locality only if there is sufficient supply of electric power.

“Everything is run by electricity nowadays,” he said.

PPEI is generating 20 megawatts of electricity and it is now serving the energy requirements of Republic Cement Corporation and the people of Iligan through Iligan Light and Power, Inc. (ILPI), he said.

It was learned that PPEI has been supporting the community even during the construction stage by providing manpower training, assistance to schools in surrounding areas and participating in environmental programs of the adjoining barangays.

The donations were accepted by Councilor Jake Balanay, Chairman of the Sangguniang Panglunsode Committee on Environment on behalf of the Mayor and the Vice Mayor who were not present during the occasion.

On behalf of the city government, Balanay also turned over the donations to barangay Kiwalan, represented by Barangay Captain Grecita L. Catubig.

Bernabe also disclosed that PPEI has transferred its main office in Makati, Metro Manila to Purok 7, Kiwalan, Iligan City where their power generating plant is situated.
