DOE distributed 12 LED lamps each to national government agencies that garnered a 5-star rating during the general assembly of the Association of Government Information Officers (AGIO-7) on March 21, 2024, at the Cebu Grand Hotel.

The spot-check activity is under the Government Energy Management Program (GEMP) of the DOE. GEMP aims to reduce the use and cost of energy in government agencies by advancing energy efficiency technologies and practices in all government facilities. The program requires all government offices to reduce their electricity and fuel consumption by 10%.

Regional Director Shalaine Marie Lucero thanked the DOE for recognizing the efforts of DSWD 7 in cost-saving measures for effective and efficient energy consumption.

“I urge everyone to continue the Pagpakabana of our cost-saving measures to reduce energy costs,” encouraged Director Lucero to the staff. ###
