The activity is part of the 2nd year anniversary of MORE Power’s franchise as the metro’s official distribution utility. The bike fun ride is part of the initiative of the DU to support the local government in its efforts to cement a title for Iloilo City as the Bike Capital of the Philippines.
MORE is also fervent in clearing bike lanes of hazards such as hanging wires and road obstacles.
Since its installation in Iloilo City, MORE has initiated activities to improve power distribution in the metro, eradicate power pilferage, and provide quality customer service to Ilonggos.
The power company is also an active member of the community with its array of CSR activities. It may be recalled that, in February, MORE releases around 700 juvenile fishes in the Iloilo River to improve the river’s ecosystem and offer a source of food to local fishers. Earlier this year, MORE employees also took time to plant additional mangroves at the banks of the Iloilo River.
