WEB Site: Cabilao Solar Project

CALIBAO ISLAND, BOHOL--The residents and foreign tourists here, who were deprived of the benefits of the information technology (IT) evolution because of limited power supply, will now get to experience the country's first solar-powered computer laboratory-cum-Internet café at Cabilao National High School (CNHS).

The solar-powered computer laboratory on Cabilao Island was made possible through the consolidated efforts of the Center for Industrial Technology and Enterprise (Cite), and the German Development Service (DED) with funding assistance from the Gate program of Gessellschaft fuer Technische Zusamme-narbeit and the Municipality of Loon, Bohol, Philippines.

Allan Hendrick Buena, electrical department head of Cite, said the budget for the entire project was P1.9 million covering the purchase of 28 solar panels, batteries, computers, inverter and other on-line services for one year.

The Municipality of Loon, Bohol, Philippines provided the local counterpart funding of P200,000 for the infrastructure and monthly payments of IT technicians in the laboratory, among others.

Konrad Bortoli, DED coordinator for the Economic and Employment Promotion, said the project's main objective was to bring computer literacy to the 379 high school students of CNHS and to provide an income-generating project for the school.

"Before, students here didn't have the formal computer education because of the limited power supply here, where communities in the island are allowed to use power supply only from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. with their existing diesel power plant here," he said.

Bortoli said the realization of the project came after several of their friends who are also the resort owners of the diving resort in the island who showed interest in an Internet and computer laboratory that would also connect the island to the outside world.

Solar panels

Buena said energy produced by the 28 solar panels would be stored in the 24 batteries. Then from direct current, it would be converted to alternating current.

Afterwards, power will be brought to the controller-a gate to give 220 volts, from which it will then go to the laboratory.

He said the laboratory has six computers, five of which will be for the use of students, and the remaining one for the teacher administrator in charge of the laboratory.

Buena said locals and foreign tourists on the island would also get to enjoy the service. Locals pay P20 per hour for the Internet service, while foreign tourists will pay P100 an hour.

"Our Internet service provider is the AZ Communication using the satellite communication service with 128 kbps or speed per second passing the Agila 2 satellite launched by former President Fidel V. Ramos," he said.

With the solar-powered computer laboratory, Cabilao National High School principal Mario Garcia said its students will now have the edge in terms of IT education over other schools in Bohol.

He said the computer course for the students will be put under the Technology and Livelihood Education Curriculum for the third and fourth year high school students.

Department of Education-Bohol education supervisor I Marcelo Vigante expressed gratitude to the German community that made the project possible.

Loon Mayor Yul Lopez said the Internet lab is a priceless project for Cabilao Island, which will now have a bridge of information to the outside world. (Clara Mae Hortelano)

There are 111 islets dotting around the mainland province. It would be a breakthrough in Philippine IT history if we have solar-powered Internet on these islets.
