SINAG is the Philippines’ first entry to the World Solar Challenge. It is a symbol of national pride and a solid proof of Filipinos’ capability to stand shoulder to shoulder with the rest of the world in developing solar power as a viable and sustainable source of energy.
The design and construction of this car is being undertaken by a dedicated group of faculty and students from the Mechanical Engineering Department and the Electronic and Communications Engineering Department of De La Salle University-Manila, with the help and partnership of Ford Group Philippines, San Miguel Corporation, Motolite, Shell, Sunpower, Philippine Airlines, and Ventus.
The Philippine Solar Car Society, Inc. is a non-stock, non-profit organization incorporated to promote the beneficial use of renewable energy sources –including, but not limited to, solar power. The Society aims to undertake a viable and continuing program for the study and application of renewable energy sources toward the development of a Philippine program for sustainable utilization of renewable energy.
