QUEZON CITY – Quezon City has gone green with the signing of a resolution urging Mayor Herbert Bautista to include the installation of solar light-emitting diode (LED) lights in street lamp posts in his priority projects, the Manila Bulletin reported.
City Resolution 7667-2018 seeks to make the streets and communities safer with solar-powered LED lights, noting such a move will result in savings which can be used in other programs and services of the local government.
“The move to adopt an integrated solar LED light is more advantageous to private consumers and to the government in terms of costs and savings,” the resolution reads.
Introduced by Councilors Hero Clarence Bautista and Allan Butch Francisco, the document states the integrated solar lights have a charging time of six hours with eight hours of full power and 40 hours of power saving mode.
These solar lights has a lifetime of 50,000 hours and can last for up 20 years.
Meanwhile, the city council approved two subdivision plans in Barangay Bagong Silangan and Barangay Payatas to further advance local land ownership.
Written by Councilors Precious Hipolito-Castelo and Franz Pumaren, City Ordinance 2732-2018 gives a green light for the subdivision plan of Meadow Heights Residences for 90 saleable lots located along J. P. Rizal Street in Brgy. Bagong Silangan.
Conversely, City Ordinance 2733-2018, introduced by Castelo, backed the 123 lot-subdivision plan of Lakas ng Lower Hasmin Homeowners Association, Inc. along Camia Street, Lower Hasmin, Barangay Payatas A.
The recently approved resolutions are in line with City Ordinance 2502-2012 or the Quezon City Comprehensive Zoning Ordinances of 2016 which provides more housing lots for residents.
