Attention: MS. SHARON REGOSO
Rizal, is a fifth class municipality in the province of Laguna. By reason of its limited income our town was pinned to the bottom among all the thirty (30) municipalities in the province. Aside from being poor we have observed that our municipality is not known to many even by other people from our neighboring towns. There are instances that people or officials from government or private offices who tried to visit our place reached the province of Rizal by mistake. This incident happens probably because of lack of municipal landmark which we commonly called: Municipal Identity Crisis. Insufficient fund and municipal identity crisis are two contributing factors that make Rizal at the bottom. For these reason officials of the Local Government Unit of Rizal is doing its best to elevate the status of the municipality into a higher classification.
In order to combat the economic problem and the so-called identity crisis of the municipality , the LGU is committed to promote and develop the newly discovered Tayak Hill and the Landing Point (see attached Historical Background) in Sitio Malaseña, Brgy. Tala, Rizal, Laguna. The place has the potential of becoming a premiere tourist destination of our town. Tayak Hill is 560 FASL with a surpassing scenic view of Tagaytay. Developing Tayak Adventure Park at Tayak Hill and The Landing Point will help improve the economy of our town and at the same time it will make Rizal known not only to the province but the whole country as well.
Considering that SUNPOWER Phils. Ltd. is the leading manufacturer of Solar panels in the world, we do believe that your company can help us by way of providing technical expertise, man power and materials that are very essential in the establishment of Solar Panel Lamp Posts in Tayak Adventure Park and The Landing Point. Setting up of Solar Panel Lamppost on Tayak Adventure Park and The Landing Point seems very significant because it will add beauty to the place especially during night time.
In addition to this, fifty (50) household farmers at Tayak Hill are very much dependent on their existing battery operated solar panels provided by the National Power Corporation (NAPOCOR).
In view of this, it is with great pride and honor to invite you to visit the municipality of Rizal for you to see its promising beauty and find how your SUNPOWER PHILIPPINES MFG. LTD. can support us in our quest for development.
Thank you and looking forward for your favorable response on this request.
