The researchers from the Cebu Technological University (CTU) Daanbantayan Campus displayed remarkable courage and resilience as they presented their project proposal, titled “Accessible Electricity through Solar Power Installation in Households,” during the FSG Summit 2023 at CTU Danao Campus on May 11, 2023. Despite the energetic atmosphere of the three-day leadership training, the researchers remained focused on their goal.
Aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), their innovative project aims to bring accessible electricity to the residents of Carnaza Island, Daanbantayan, Cebu. By harnessing solar power, the project seeks to benefit the island’s fishermen, enhance educational opportunities by extending electricity support, and contribute to the overall welfare and sustainability of the community. Presenting their project to the board panel, researchers Archilles Layague, Dhan Abarao, Aprilleen Omblero, Jerick Nio Bojos, and Junhnel Camay were prepared to answer questions about their proposed study.
During the session, Bojos expressed his belief that the Local Government Unit would be inclined to support their cause, as the project would significantly improve the community’s well-being. Recognizing the importance of Carnaza Island as one of the tourist attractions in the Municipality of Daanbantayan, Cebu, Bojos emphasized that the project would benefit the residents and contribute to the region’s development and sustainability.
The CTU Daanbantayan Campus researchers’ unwavering determination and dedication to their projects are commendable. Their pursuit of providing accessible electricity to Carnaza Island demonstrates their commitment to empowering communities and creating a brighter and more sustainable future for all.
