TAGKAWAYAN, Quezon – Setting a bold precedent for the province of Quezon, the municipality of Tagkawayan has unanimously enacted an ordinance to ban fossil fuel-based energy projects and prioritize the development of renewable energy sources. This landmark decision solidifies the town's commitment to combating climate change and paves the way for a sustainable energy future in the region.

Ordinance No. 100-2024, spearheaded by Councilor John Pocholo Eleazar, marks a significant shift in the town's energy policy. By prioritizing renewable sources like solar and wind power over traditional fossil fuels, Tagkawayan is taking a decisive step towards a cleaner, greener future.

This groundbreaking decision is expected to have far-reaching implications, not just for Tagkawayan but for the entire country. It serves as a powerful example of how local governments can take decisive action on climate change and inspire others to follow suit.

Mayor Carlo Eleazar, a vocal advocate for renewable energy, expressed his pride in the town's decision, stating, "Tagkawayan is proud to be at the forefront of the renewable energy transition in the Philippines. This ordinance is a testament to our commitment to sustainability, innovation, and the well-being of our community."

The ordinance is expected to attract investment in renewable energy projects, creating jobs and stimulating economic growth while also reducing the town's reliance on polluting fossil fuels. It is a win-win situation for both the environment and the local economy.

"This is a momentous occasion for Tagkawayan and a significant step forward in our journey towards a more sustainable future," said Councilor Eleazar. "We hope that our actions will inspire other communities to embrace renewable energy and join us in building a cleaner, healthier Philippines."

The ordinance has been met with widespread support from residents, environmental groups, and renewable energy advocates, who see it as a beacon of hope in the fight against climate change. As the world grapples with the urgent need to transition to cleaner energy sources, Tagkawayan's bold move serves as a shining example of what is possible when communities come together to create a better future.
