Mayor Emmanuel Salvador Fronda II on October 4, 2022 to discuss an Information, Education, and Communication (IEC) Campaign on Government Energy Management Program (GEMP).

Admin Baral assured that, with the pool of engineers and technical team from the LGU, the Municipality of Balayan is one with the objective of the PNOC RC and the whole DOE to ensure the efficient energy consumption and conservation.
