Corregidor Island Series - Eternal Flame of Freedom

October 29, 2008

This is the Eternal Flame of Freedom Monument at Corregidor Island.This Structure was put in place to commemorate the recapture of the Philippine island by the United States in 1945. According to renewableenergyworld.com, California-based SunPower, which owns a manufacturing facility in the Philippenes, provided the solar modules for the project.

For the 60th anniversary ceremony of the recapture, PV panel manufacturer Sunpower helped to donate and install three 200 W panels and helped to install the system that will light the memorial from dusk to dawn. Other project sponsors and supporters include: U-Freight Philippines, the Department of Energy, the Corregidor Foundation and the Filipino-American Memorial Endowment.

The Eternal Flame Monument symbolizes the Flame of Freedom burning eternally. It is located behind the Pacific War Memorial Dome of Peace, and sits on a raised platform above a reflecting pool. Designed by Aristides Dimetrios, the sculpture commemorates the sacrifices and struggle by the US and Philippines to preserve freedom for future generations.
