eSakay, Inc., a subsidiary of the Manila Electric Company (Meralco), has partnered with Golden Arches Development Corp. (GADC) to set up electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in select McDonald’s branches.
Through the partnership, GADC – the operator of McDonald’s Philippines – tapped eSakay to install EV charging stations in McDonald’s Green and Good Stores in UN Avenue in Ermita, Manila and Shaw Boulevard, Wack-Wack in Mandaluyong.
The deployment of eSakay charging stations, which cater to two- and three-wheeled EVs, supports McDonald’s commitment to provide better and more environmentally sustainable stores for customers.
With the coin-operated charging stations, EV users visiting the McDonald’s branches can simply plug in their e-Bikes and e-Scooters for a minimal fee of Php1 for a five-minute charge; Php5 for a 25-minute charge; and Php10 for a 50-minute charge.
Each charging station can accommodate two users at a time, with two outlets having a power rating of 2,200 watts each.
“eSakay’s partnership with McDonald’s Philippines underscores our commitment to support green mobility efforts in line with Meralco’s sustainability agenda,” said Meralco Chief Sustainability Officer and eSakay President and CEO Raymond B. Ravelo.
eSakay will heighten its collaboration with McDonald’s as it plans to deploy EV charging stations to more branches, furthering both companies’ sustainability initiatives in their respective business operations.
“We look forward to working very closely with even more companies in driving key sustainability programs such as this as part of our pledge to protect and preserve our planet, and to power good lives for Filipinos,” he added.
Through its EV solutions, eSakay also supports Meralco, in achieving its emission reduction objectives, by beginning to convert the latter’s vehicle fleet into zero emission EVs, including e-motorcycles, e-cars, e-Vans, and e-pickups.
eSakay is the green mobility arm of Meralco that provides end-to-end EV and charging infrastructure solutions for institutional customers and the riding public. It is committed to enabling and supporting the country’s transition towards cleaner and more sustainable transport systems. For details and inquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
