The municipal governments of Magallanes and Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo towns of Cavite each signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Meralco for the Energizing Partnerships Program (EPP), with the goal of spurring progress through joint initiatives with the country’s largest power utility.
 
In his speech during the signing ceremony, Meralco Vice President and Head of Home MicroBiz (HMB)-South Business Area, Ferdinand O. Geluz, said that the EPP is in line with Meralco Chairman Manny V.
