Vroom vroom! Jaime Fresnedi takes e-trike for a test drive

0 920

Muntinlupa City Mayor Jaime Fresnedi got the chance to try what it was like driving a tricycle when the Department of Energy (DOE) turned over 150 units of e-tricycles to the local government on November 9.

Fresnedi gamely hopped inside the e-tricycle parked at the Muntinlupa Sports Complex and took it for a test drive as local and DOE officials looked on.

Muntinlupa City is the first of the four cities in NCR to receive the e-trikes from the DOE.

Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi said the donation of e-trikes is the DOE’s way of promoting the use of environmentally friendly transportation services.

Last June, the DOE and the mayors of the cities of Las Piñas, Muntinlupa, Pateros, and Valenzuela signed a memorandum of agreement on the donation of e-trikes at the DOE headquarters.
