A bahay kubo equipped with household equipment run on solar energy drew a crowd on Thursday night, Dec. 9 at its launching at the Al Fresco area of Robinsons in Dumaguete.{{more}}

People came to experience the amazing possibilities of maximizing power from the sun, as they walked through the “solar kubo” that powered lights, an electric fan, a refrigerator, and more.

Conservation and environmental education on renewable energy is the advocacy of the solar kubo that will be on display at Robinsons for all to see, touch, and walk through to experience how the sun can power household appliances, lamps, and computers in a home. The launching was a night of live music and education on the value of renewable energy for the future of our planet.

Conceived as a way to introduce alternative sources of energy, the solar kubo will demonstrate the capacity that is available today to reduce our dependency on energy drawn from fossil fuels and other sources of power harmful to the environment and future generations.

The solar kubo is a cooperative effort led by Oriental Negros for 350 (ONe350), an alliance of environmental advocates in Oriental Negros, with the Negros Oriental Wildlife Conservation Council, in partnership with GreenPowerPhil, Buglas Bamboo Institute, and Robinsons. The solar kubo will be on display at Robinsons until Dec. 18.
