More than a dozen street lights powered by solar energy have been installed in the village of Laud Kulasi by the provincial government of Sulu as part of an on-going infrastructure and development program, officials said.
Abdusakur “Totoh” Tan 2nd led the inauguration ceremony on Wednesday in the coastal town of Maimbung where 20 solar power LED street lights were installed.
The governor said at least 30 other solar streetlights had been installed in other towns under the “Project Solar Street Lights.” He said more projects are underway not only in Maimbung, but other areas as well, to better serve the people.
“We hope to put more street lights and other infra and development projects in all the 19 towns and with the strong support of local officials and the people, we now see a better and progressive Sulu,” the governor told The Manila Times.
For his part, the mayor reiterated his commitment to continue to set up more development projects and to provide basic services to the communities to spur economic activities in Maimbung. He said aside from the streetlights, there is an on-going construction of flea market and a covered court in the town.
