SOLAR ENERGY SAVES POWER COST DURING QUARANTINE

The novel Corona Virus (COVID - 19) has disrupted the lives of every individual globally bringing uncertainties, forcing countries to observe government mandated lockdowns and quarantine.  This has brought about drastic modifications to each sector in the community in response to this deadly threat.

Among the most affected by this outbreak is the global educational system which does not spare Foundation University from.  In the Philippines, the Department of Education has been trying its best to address the concerns of parents, teachers and students.  Although the university has been fortunate enough to have finished the academic year 2019 - 2020 a week before the enhanced community quarantine was declared in the province of Negros Oriental, where it is located.

The whole two (2) months of the summer, minors of age 0-20 were not allowed to go out of their homes with the government mandated 24 hour curfew.  while enhanced community quarantine was being effected throughout the country schools were also ordered a 100% closure affecting all students and teachers and employees at the same time.

The university had no source of income at all while utility bills kept piling up but it was necessary to maintain its upkeep which needed power generation.    The solar power of the university, though not 100% yet, has contributed so much in the savings of electricity bills that other expenses may be accommodated.

Again, the gear towards become 100% solar powered has served its purpose of saving energy and costs during this time when the nation and the world needs solutions while reducing the earth's carbon footprint.

The novel Corona Virus (COVID - 19) has disrupted the lives of every individual globally bringing uncertainties, forcing countries to observe government mandated lockdowns and quarantine.  This has brought about drastic modifications to each sector in the community in response to this deadly threat.

 

To date, minors of age 0-21 are still not allowed to go out of their homes with the government mandated 24 hour curfew.  While modified general community quarantine has already been effected at the start of July 2020, in Dumaguete City,  there is still limited movement in terms of any form of gathering.

 

While Foundation University protects the interest of its students health, safety and security, the administration has disallowed the continuance of this community project from April to June 2020.  The proponents of this project being students had to put on hold the scope of work that was scheduled for the past 3 months.

 

The project has resumed on July 1, 2020.  Foundation University Architecture students involved in this project who are above 21 years old started preparing the materials to start with the interior works of the animal shelter housing for volunteers and veterinanarians including door jamb fabrications and installation of poly fiber windows.  At the moment, it is the best that could be done with social distancing to be considered also.

The novel Corona Virus (COVID - 19) has disrupted the lives of every individual globally bringing uncertainties, forcing countries to observe government mandated lockdowns and quarantine.  This has brought about drastic modifications to each sector in the community in response to this deadly threat.

This has not spared the field of sports in the Philippine arena. Big and small leagues have either been cancelled or postponed over the summer when the Community Quarantine was imposed.  The athletes under the Sports Scholarship Program who have been trained for such events are in status quo.  The Summer Sports Camp which was suppose to train athletes from the grass roots level have all been cancelled.

Today, July 1, 2020, Negors Oriental has been downgraded to Modified General Community Quarantine.  Under it's guideline sports activities are still prohibited.
