Philippine Science High School (PSHS), the premier science high school in the country has initiated its own renewable energy effort with the installation of solar panels donated by the Renewable Energy Testing Center.

This was undertaken in cooperation with the Ayala Foundation, the social development arm of Ayala Corporation since June 2015. This is an affirmation of Ayala Corporation’s commitment to education and innovation.

Ayala Foundation  donated Php1.5 million for the transport and installation of the solar panels donated by the Renewable Energy Testing Center.

The solar panels was installed on the rooftop of the PSHS Advanced Science and Technology Building which is located at the PSHS Main Campus in Diliman, Quezon City.

This enabled PSHS to use renewable and clean energy for its operations, notwithstanding the reduced costs with regards to electric consumption in its main campus.

This also enabled PSHS to utilize the savings generated into the PSHS Research Fund that  benefited  promising and deserving students with regards to their research projects.
The ceremonial signing of the agreement was held at Ayala Tower One in Makati City.  Present during the signing were Ayala Foundation President Ruel T. Maranan, Ayala Chief Financial Officer Jose Teodoro Limcaoco, PSHS QC Campus Director Virginia Andres, PSHS Foundation Vice President Hector Guballa, and Maria Lourdes Dario from PSHS Batch 1985.

Ayala Foundation and PSHS aims to harness the potential of gifted students in the pursuit of national development through science and technology.
