The Philippines second solar car has arrived in Bacolod City and now being showcased at the Northwing Atrium of SM. The exhibit will run until Sunday and will be transferred at the University of St. La Salle on Monday. 

Taking off from De La Salle University, last January 12, SIKAT, the Philippines’ second solar car tours arrived in SM City Bacolod as part of it's 50-day tour of the Philippines.

SIKAT is the second Philippine solar-powered car, coming quickly at the heels of SINAG, which completed the World Solar Challenge. They stand as symbols of national pride and a solid proof of Filipinos’ capability to stand shoulder to shoulder with the rest of the world in developing solar power as a viable and sustainable source of energy.
