Gatchalian, Muntinlupa Mayor Jaime Fresnedi, and Las Piñas Mayor Imelda Aguilar. The four mayors signed a Memorandum of Agreement with the Energy Chief on 1 June 2018 as recipients of the electric vehicles under the DOE’s E-Trike Program.

Department of Energy (DOE), thru Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi, will donate e-trike units to the cities of Las Piñas, Muntinlupa, Pateros and Valenzuela. A Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) was signed by the DOE Secretary with the City Mayors at the DOE headquarters on Friday (June 1). 

“The DOE E-Trike is a project that encourages the transition from oil to cleaner sources of energy,” Cusi said.

“The 900 units to be given to the four cities will benefit many communities, in terms of livelihood and the services that it can provide to the people,” Cusi emphasized.

The DOE will provide Las Piñas 100 e-trike units, Muntinlupa,  150 units; Pateros, 400 units; 
and Valenzuela, 250 units. 

Under the MOA, the LGUs must comply with the documentary requirements,  among other prerequisites, such as their proposal for the utilization of the e-trikes in their LGUs.

In January, the DOE donated e-trike units to the Marawi LGU as part of the national government’s rebuilding efforts in the city after the siege.

The first 10 of the 200 units will arrive in Cagayan De Oro on Sunday, while the Philippine Navy is scheduling the rest for shipment.

In line with the E-Power Mo campaign, the DOE promotes the revolutionary concept of modernizing the transport sector by providing an efficient, safe, ergonomic and environment-friendly alternative mode of transport for  local and foreign tourists via the Market Transformation Through the Introduction of Energy Efficient Vehicles (E-trike) Project.

The DOE aims to facilitate transport sector modernization through the use of energy-efficient and alternative technology vehicles to complement the government’s objective of sustainable and inclusive growth.
