Luzon Grid Placed Under Yellow & Red Alerts Again, NGCP Says
The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines announced that the Luzon Grid has been placed again under yellow and red alerts.
On Friday (June 7, 2019), yellow and red alert status has been raised in the Luzon Grid since its peak demand nearly reached its available capacity.
NGCP said that Luzon Grid will be placed under yellow alert starting 8:00 am to 10:00 am and from 4:00 pm until 10:00 pm.
The red alert status will be raised from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm in the afternoon.
Luzon Grid’s available capacity is at 11,376 MegaWatts while the peak demand has already reached 11,237.
The Department of Energy (DOE) will release further details on the cause later today.
The yellow alert indicates that the reserve power of the grid is already below the level required.
The red alert means that the grid’s available capacity could be outstripped by the demand.
