Electric vehicles are wonders of automotive technology. They are generally cleaner and cheaper to drive, saving in fuel cost and greatly reducing the amount of carbon emissions that hasten global warming. Here in the Philippines, stakeholders of the fledgling electric vehicle industry are working together in pushing for further investments in clean vehicle technology.

Toward a transportation EVolution

Foreseeing a future where more electric vehicles ply the roads, Meralco — upon the request of Horizon Homes at Shangri-La at the Fort, Manila — has set up an exclusive electric vehicle (EV) charging station at the luxury residential complex’s basement parking. Opened on December 14, this EV charging station was built by Meralco with help from ABB and Mitsubishi Motors to help residents in the gradual shift toward using electric cars.

“Because of the profile of our residents, we want to give them the most innovative features,” said Horizon Homes property director Gaile Moreno.

The new charging station makes it easier to adopt electric vehicles as an alternative mode of transportation that promotes better urban mobility. In this regard, Meralco continues to collaborate with other EV stakeholders in expanding the network of charging stations nationwide. This will, in turn, foster the faster growth and evolution of the entire EV industry.
