Luzon power supply dips, ‘yellow alert’ up
Due to low power supply, the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) on Tuesday placed the Luzon power grid on “yellow alert.”
Yellow alert means the power supply has dropped to a level below the required reserve of 647 megawatts (MW). Brownouts will occur once more power-generating plants go off.
The Luzon grid is on yellow alert from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. due to “lower level contingency reserves brought about by insufficient power supply,” NGCP, which maintains and operates the country’s power transmission network, posted on Facebook.
As of 10 a.m., the available capacity is 9905 MW with a peak demand of 9479 MW. Jaehwa Bernardo, INQUIRER.net trainee/KS/rga
