Bichara gets recognition for initiatives in efficient energy usage
Albay Governor Al Francis Bichara has recently been awarded by the Department of Energy for his initiatives in efficient energy usage
Bichara received the plaque of recognition conferred by the representatives of the DOE.
The DOE special award was given in recognition of the excellent achievements and initiatives of the Provincial Government of Albay under Bichara’s leadership for efficient energy usage and conservation for the fiscal year 2020 to 2021.
The DOE graded the Provincial Government of Albay beyond 90% in its implementation of R.A. No. 11285, otherwise known as Energy Efficiency and Conservation Act.
The grade was the result of the first-ever virtual audit by the DOE held in November last year to the Provincial Planning and Development Office team headed by Planning Officer Arnold Onrubia and the Provincial General Services Office (PGSO) team headed by PGSO Asst. Head Elmer de Ala.
Representing the Energy department during the awarding ceremony was Science Research Specialist I Sienna Mae S. Hortaleza and Science Research Specialist I Mary Grace O. Razonable.
