“Schedule may be canceled if system condition improves, such as if actual demand falls below projections,” NGCP said.

NGCP earlier placed the Luzon grid on red alert from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The grid will be on red alert again 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and yellow alert from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m.

The yellow and red alert statuses were issued due to a low electricity reserve in the grid.
