Residents of Atimonan in Quezon province received last week an electric jeepney (e-jeep) from Atimonan One Energy, Inc. (A1E) and e-Sakay, Inc.

The PhP1.07 Million e-jeep was turned over to Atimonanayor Rustico Mendoza, who lauded the gift as timely in the town’s battle against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mendoza expressed gratitude to MeralcoPowerGen (MGen) and A1E for continuously supporting the municipality.

“This is part of our vision for Atimonan to be part of modernization efforts that are being done at the national level,” he said.

The e-jeep project is part of A1E’s commitment to build a sustainable, community through the implementation of social development projects and programs in partnership with the LGU.


Sustainability agenda

“This project is consistent with MGen and A1E’s core values and business strategy, which are aligned with One Meralco Group’s sustainability agenda that focuses on power, planet, people and prosperity,” said MGen President and CEO Rogelio L. Singson during the virtual turnover.

Singson added that MGen remains committed to bring into reality the A1E power plant as part of the company’s energy transition plan that involves a diversified power portfolio that will utilize high efficiency, low emissions (HELE) technology and renewable sources.

eSakay President and CEO Raymond B. Ravelo said “We are very happy to be part of this very important project. This is really for greener roads and bluer skies in Atimonan.”

The e-jeep donation is part of e-Sakay-led One Meralco green mobility program.
