PPA Surigao Re-Orients Solar Lamps to Illuminate City Streets and Sidewalks

SURIGAO CITY, Surigao del Norte --The streets of Surigao City port areas are now amply illuminated with re-oriented, bright solar lamps installed at the Port of Surigao perimeter fences. 

To maximize the use of the newly-installed solar lamps, the Port Management Office of Surigao has chosen to re-orient   the outdoor-type solar LED lamps installed at the port’s perimeter fences to help illuminate the sidewalks of P. Reyes and Borromeo Streets of the Surigao City port area. 

Mounted high on steel lamp posts, each of these solar LED lights emit at least 200 to 500 lumens which are bright enough to amply illuminate  these vital thoroughfares.

Eleven (11) pairs of LED lamps are installed at P. Reyes Street (from the corner of Borromeo Street leading to the City Boulevard) while twenty five (25) pairs  are installed at the stretch of Borromeo Street from corner P. Reyes up to the Punta Bilang Bilang basin.

These installed lamps are sufficient to  brighten up the sidewalks and streets of the Surigao City port area.  

"Apart from providing enhanced security to the Surigao Port Community, solar-powered lamps promote renewable energy and significantly lessen the carbon footprint of the Port of Surigao in line with our Green Ports Initiative," said Acting PMO Surigao Port Manager Froilan Caturla. (PPA- PMO Surigao)
