DLSU-D explores more potentials in clean energy

In line with its commitment to sustainability, De La Salle University-Dasmariñas is seeking to expand the use of solar energy on campus.
Currently, the University is using 60 percent geothermal energy. It also utilizes LED lighting as well as energy-efficient appliances on campus.
In an interview with Vice Chancellor for Administrative Services Nathaniel Golla, PhD, he said that one of the thrusts of the current administration is to have a smart and sustainable campus.
“It is our dream to have a smart and sustainable campus. A part of that dream is the plan to have solar energy as source of clean and renewable power. If the budget permits, the first phase will be done in the next three years which will cover at least 50% of the campus,” he said.
Primarily, the project is being considered for outsourcing but moving forward, the University is also considering tapping the experts from the College of Engineering Architecture and Technology with the technical aspects.
The University will also seek the assistance of the Vice President of Linkages and External Affairs for possible collaborations with private entities for funding.
“This initiative mainly is in support of our overall commitment to protect the environment. Likewise, this sustainable effort is also our response to keep the financial health of the University ever vibrant,” he concluded.
