MANILA, Jan. 8, 2014 – With the pledge to help rebuild the communities affected by Yolanda, global technology innovator LG Electronics installed LG Solar Panels in the areas of Tacloban.

LG Philippines’ managing director Sung Woo Nam was among the group that visited the areas and facilitated the safe and strategic installations.  Installation areas in Tacloban included Tolosa Elementary School and Tanauan High School.

In Manila, the LGEPH employees packed numerous relief goods to send to the destinations.  Instead of celebrating their 25th anniversary with a grand Christmas party, the employees gathered together to make their own contributions to aid those in need.


“It has been over a month since Yolanda hit the nation, and it is disheartening to see how much Tacloban is still in need of help,” Mr. Nam shared.  “Even with the outpour of generosity and kindness from the rest of the world, there is still a lot that needs to be done.  We are hoping that the electricity-generating LG Solar Panels will be able to shine a bit of light on their lives.”

The installation of LG Solar Panels was executed in cooperation with the Department of Energy.  The use of solar power can light 40 LED bulbs for nine hours, activate 30 mobile charger units for 24 hours, and switch on five LED TVs for five hours.  Solar power generation is one of the most environment-friendly renewable sources of electricity, and leading manufacturer LG guarantees to sustain it.
