Homegrown Company

According to Mr. Rommel Juan, Vice President of PhUV Inc., “ours was borne out of the deep, genuine desire to help address the worsening environmental pollution in our country particularly in the transport sector. Our transport industry (and the Philippines) is woefully dependent on fossil fuel (some 0.8 billion barrels consumed annually) particularly our jeepneys – the world-renowned iconic public transport system which feeds entirely on diesel. This alarming condition was our bugle call for the development and launch of a new transport alternative – the electric jeepney or eJeepney for short.”
