Philippine Public Safety College (PPSC) LED Installation
As mandated by the Republic Act 6975 of the DILG Act of 1990, the PPSC is the premier educational institution for the training, human resource development and continuing education of all personnel of the Philippine National Police (PNP), the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) and the Bureau of Jail and Management and Penology (BJMP). The agency has a strong commitment to excellence, having acquired its ISO 9001:2008.
With several administrative orders enjoining government institutions to adopt energy-saving measures, the institution intends to pursue compliance with this directive by installing energy efficient technologies. PNOC RC, as a DOE-accredited Energy Service Company (ESCO) took the opportunity to partner with PPSC and provide technical assistance and financing for the installation of energy efficient lighting system.
In March 2016, a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) was signed by PPSC and PNOC RC for the Energy Efficient Lighting Project. The 5-year partnership involves the replacement of the three-thousand seven hundred twenty five (3,725) bulbs of traditional fluorescent and CFL lighting fixtures in the PPSC training camps, the Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA) and National Police College (NPC) Buildings. Energy-efficient LEDs were used, which are expected to reduce energy consumption from lights by up to fifty percent. Under the said agreement, PNOC RC shall finance, install and maintain the lighting fixtures without an upfront cost to the PPSC. Investment costs shall be recouped based on a revenue-sharing scheme from calculated monthly savings.
