olivarez Olivarez, vice chairman of the House Committee on Metro Manila Development, filed House Bill 3882 to be known as the Inverter Act of 2012 pursuant to Section 12, Article XIV of the Constitution, which mandates the State to promote and adapt technology from all sources for national benefit. Citing studies, Olivarez said the use of inverter air conditioners and refrigerators is gaining popularity because these are more beneficial than non-inverters. Olivarez said the inverter air conditioners save energy up to 80 percent because these reach the set temperature quicker. They are also powerful, comfortable and environment friendly, Olivarez added. “Inverter air conditioning is more expensive than the non-inverter, but its energy cost is only approximately P12 per kilowatt hour, which in the long term will be more economical to the consumers,” Olivarez said. Under the proposed measure, government officers shall be required to replace their non-inverter air conditioning unit and refrigeration system with inverter type. The Department of Energy shall issue the necessary rules and regulations to implement the provisions of the proposed act. ]]>
