President Benigno Aquino II launches the National Renewable Energy Program (NREP) at the Rizal Ballroom of the Makati Shangri-la Hotel on Tuesday with energy and environment leaders, partners and stakeholders with the aim of attaining energy self-sufficiency.
The inauguration of the said program brings for the country’s commitment to the full development and use of the country’s renewable energy resources consistent with Republic Act 9513 or the Renewable Energy Act.
I am glad that the president has shown interest in focusing on environmental issues, not only that it seems that he is trying to make us catch up with the other more advanced countries. I believe that we should get off of oil, since it is non-renewable and causes too much money to buy, especially these days. It would be nice if we end up doing what Brazil is doing and use alcohol from sugar cane to fuel our automobiles. Nevertheless, I am happy that this issue has been tackled.
This will better the environment since renewable energy is usually most clean and since it’s renewable its source will not run out. There will be very little, if not no damage done to the environment.
