MANILA, Philippines — The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) yesterday launched a free solar charging station for e-bikes and e-scooters to encourage the public to use alternative modes of transportation amid the surging cost of fuel products.

MMDA Chairman Romando Artes said the charging station, which will open on Monday, is located at the agency’s new office in Pasig.

“Putting up free charging stations for electronic vehicles will encourage the public to use alternative modes of transportation and at the same time help them save on fuel expenses,” Artes said.

The charging station has three solar panels with built-in inverters as the main power source.

Those who would be using the charging station should bring their own cables.

Artes said they are planning to build another solar charging station at the MMDA headquarters in Makati for those who will be traveling along EDSA.
