The Universidad de Zamboanga (UZ) and the Buskowitz Development, Inc. (BDI) forged on Tuesday a memorandum of agreement (MOA) for the development of a P12-million solar power project in one of the campuses of UZ in this city.
The MOA signatories were Atty. Linda Eustaquio-Lim, UZ president, and James Buskowitz, BDI chief executive officer.
The project will see the installation of a 120-kilowatt (KW) solar power system to supply electricity to the UZ main campus in Barangay Tetuan.
The BDI will be the quantity surveyor and financing partner of UZ. They appointed Energy Renewable Asia, Inc. (ERA) as the solar energy provider.
James Buskowitz, BDI chief executive officer, said the installation of the solar panels will start either by June or July.
Buskowitz said the solar power project is expected to be operational a month later.
Lim said they chose ERA as the solar energy provider because of its local expertise having already done several projects in Metro Manila, Aklan and Iloilo, as well as international experience in Germany, Australia, India and Myanmar.
