The yellow alert status is raised when a power grid’s power reserve, or the difference between supply and demand, is below the required level, according to NGCP.

Meanwhile, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, the Luzon Grid will then be placed under “red alert” status, which is put in place when it is likely that the demand will outstrip available generating capacity.
