Baguio City Mayor Mauricio Domogan said the city government is eyeing the installation of the solar powered-lighting and heating systems for the olympic-sized pool at the Baguio Athletic Bowl.
The Baguio politiko said the project is ready to be bidded out by the city government to solar power companies.
Domogan said several solar power companies previously visited the Baguio City Hall and offered to install solar panels in the city government’s facilities.
“There were numerous companies who conducted previous studies on the viability of the swimming pool to be operated through solar power to lessen our huge expenses in the heating up of the swimming pool, especially during competitions,” Domogan said.
He added converting to solar power will not only be helpful to the environment but also less costly to the city government in the long run.
