MORE Power continues to embody its principles of bringing MORE to Life by launching MORE Power E-Bus in the streets of Iloilo City. It is powered by a lithium-ion battery charged with electricity which can carry up to 20 passengers and can travel up to 100 kilometers when fully charged.

MORE Power executives and officials paved the way to showcase the very first Electric Bus or E-Bus in the streets of Iloilo City.

This kind of electric vehicle has been operating in various major Provinces and Cities in the country, including Taguig City, Davao, Cebu, Cagayan de Oro, Pampanga and Batangas. 

One of the first passengers of the E-bus was Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas and has been supportive of MORE Power's initiative of bring more sustainable options in the city.

"Thrilled to ride the eco-friendly e-bus of MORE Power. Let's all do our part in reducing our carbon footprint and switch to sustainable transportation options", says Mayor Treñas.

MORE Power teamed up with supplier Global Electric Transport or GET Philippines with the hopes of giving an alternative means of transportation, an offshoot of the usual fossil fuel-powered engine. 

“Part ito ng sustainable objectives ng MORE Power and ang Iloilo city has always been promoting to be a sustainable city with sustainable initiatives. Since we are in the electric distribution business, we thought of bringing this in", says MORE Power President Roel Castro.

MORE Power aims to tap local transport cooperatives in Iloilo City so they may consider adapting this type of public transportation unit. 

"Eventually, we want this promoted and that the transport coops will really get into this. This is part of our corporate social responsibility to really introduce a very important sustainable initiative here in the city,” says a jubilant Castro. 

Additionally, aside from being a better option as a public transport, e-busses are also ideal vehicles as shuttle service for employees working in the Business Process Outsourcing in Iloilo City. 

MORE Power targets to release at least 10 units of E-Busses in Iloilo City this year, so that more and more people will be familiar with this vehicle.

The local government of Iloilo City strongly supports sustainable initiatives especially the transportation sector for the Ilonggos.

Indeed, e-busses are one of the best options in combatting the serious environmental issues we are facing today.
