Luzon grid on red alert for 13 hours

Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, April 12) —The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) raised a red alert — the highest alert — for the Luzon grid for the third consecutive day on Friday.

The red alert is raised from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. while yellow alert is up from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. The available capacity is at 10,220 megawatts, while the peak demand is at 10,334 megawatts.

A yellow alert means power reserves have dropped below the minimum 647 megawatts. A red alert means there is insufficient power supply and possible brownouts may occur.

NGCP said it may implement rotational brownouts in Angeles City in Pampanga, parts of Batangas, parts of Ilocos Sur, parts of La Union, parts of Nueva Vizcaya, parts of Ifugao, parts of Camarines Sur and Norte, and parts of Metro Manila from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. It said the schedule may be canceled if system condition improves.

A red alert status was hoisted over the grid for the first time this year on Wednesday following consecutive days of being under yellow alert.
