OBMC as a Meralco Biz Luminary For 2023

MAY 31

O.B. Montessori Center (OBMC) is a Meralco Biz Luminary 2023 for its proactive effort towards sustainability and a cleaner energy future. OBMC President Sara Soliven-De Guzman accepted the Luminaries Award on behalf of the school last March 7, 2024, at the Grand Hyatt Manila in Taguig City.

Embedded in its curriculum, OBMC puts into action the necessities of sustainability and environmental protection by conducting activities like tree planting and coastal cleanups to foster civic duty and responsibility among its students. In 2023, OBMC partnered with Spectrum to install 99-kilowatt peak (kW) solar panels on the rooftop of its Fairview Campus. In addition to the environmental impact, the school realized substantial monetary savings.

OBMC is now advancing its effort to shift to renewable energy as a source of electricity to decrease the school’s carbon footprint and set an example for others to follow. According to Ms. Soliven-De Guzman, “Kung kaya namin, kaya rin nila iyan. We may have a small voice [for sustainability and environmental protection]—but it is a strong voice, and I hope it impacts our society.”
