Penang Monthly Updates

Filed under: from the editor — mollyosc @ 5:23 am


Penang Monthly, the voice of Penang.

Penang Monthly endeavours to be the mouthpiece of Penang and an inspiring read for the curious Malaysian. A publication of Penang Institute, it aims to supply Penangites with information about significant issues in order to promote public participation, thus encouraging discussions about the various aspects of Penang’s fates and fortunes.

At the same time, we seek to profile Penang personalities who have contributed, sometimes in very unassuming but critical ways, to the reputation and wellbeing of the state, and to put the spotlight on ordinary Penangites who otherwise go unnoticed, but who nevertheless define the culture of the state in essential ways.

As Penang evolves, we would like to highlight its importance as a generator of culture, education, industry and cosmopolitan values – not just in our features, but also in in-depth analyses of the culture economy. We aspire to emphasise present trends in the arts, industry, politics and economics which affect the immediate future of the state and country.

On top of that, apart from our monthly socio-economic data section, we also provide a quarterly economic review, offering reliable socioeconomic data for the benefit of decision makers in government and the private sector.

An all-round read indeed.

Rainwater Harvesting System

Filed under: from the editor — mollyosc @ 5:05 am

From Penang Green Council :

In the efforts of promoting green practices, it is often more important to make things happen than preaching slogans. Penang State Government allocate funding in green incentives to promote sustainable use of resources and development every year.

The Penang Rainwater Harvesting Incentive (PRHI) is one of the State Government’s initiatives and is now open for application!

Many of you might not know that only 6% of Penang’s total land areas are designated for water catchment, and Penang is highly depending on raw water source from Sungai Muda, Kedah. Hence, it is crucial for Penangites to practice water saving at home and in offices. PRHI is introduced by the Penang State Government as an incentive for commercial and residential building owners or their appointed Joint Management Body (JMB) with installed rainwater harvesting system. This incentive aims to reduce the dependency of treated water for non-potable purposes and encourage healthy water use practices amongst Penangites.

The FIRST 10 applicants with completed application and documents will receive an incentive of RM500, on a first-come, first-served basis.

The application is open until October 2018 only.

Hurry up and apply for PRHI at https://goo.gl/jbKDbm now!
