Through a Global Grant, RC San Pedro South installed a solar powered potable water treatment project at Cuyab Elementary School with a population of about 1,100 pupils. The project includes a deep well with a submersible pump powered by a solar panel. The system can produce a maximum of 2,000 liters per hour when the solar panel is at its peak capacity. Thus the school need not worry about water and electricity bills.
To manage the project’s operation and maintenance including the sharing of potable water with the surrounding community, the Cuyab Rotary Community Corps, RCC, was formed last Dec 6, 2016 with the officers coming from the school faculty, PTA and local government. The project was inaugurated last December 8, 2016. The RCC will decide on how to share the potable water with the nearby community, its pricing, schedule and mechanics
