DepEd Quezon , IV-A CALABARZON
Electrical power for isolated and far-flung schools (off-grid or far from power lines) now a days is already within reach through the use of solar energy. Not only that DepEd has established partnerships with different NGO providers, but also, solar power energy hard wares' prices through the years have decreased tremendously.

Another value added by the electrification is that it could become a revenue generator for the school’s parent-teacher-association (PTA) which they could use to maintain it and the excess in other equally important things. More importantly, the impact that it will create to the community is imaginable, economically and socially.

The writer also motivated to research and read a lot on solar energy home and school installation of both off-grid and grid-tie systems. Solar energy use has now become part of his environment's personal advocacy.
