Wazzup Pilipinas!

The Department of Energy (DOE) is closely monitoring the power supply situation in Luzon following the Forced Outage of the 122 megawatts (MW) of the South Luzon Thermal Energy Corporation’s (SLTEC) coal-fired power plant and 300 MW-Block B of the Ilijan Natural Gas Power Plant resulting in the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines’ (NGCP) Yellow Alert declaration from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. of 19 July, 2016.

As of 9:00 a.m. of the said date, the available capacity stood at 9,981 MW, while the demand is projected to reach 9,479 MW.

In response, Manila Electric Corporation (MERALCO) already coordinated with its Interruptible Load Program (ILP) participants to augment the supply. As of 11 a.m., there are about 154 ILP participants that have confirmed their availability equivalent to 315 MW.

The DOE constantly reminds the public to practice energy efficiency and conservation measures.
