PIA Press Release

Luzon grid power shortage reaches 446 MW

Tuguegarao City (4 March) -- System operator and power transmission utility National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) reported that Luzon grid will have a generation deficiency of 446 MW today, March 4, due to the decreased capacity of some plants such as the Aboitiz Power Corporation's Magat hydro-electric plant which is already non-operational today because of low water levels at the reservoir.

Yesterday, March 3, Luzon grid experienced a power shortage of 236 MW and it was running and contributing 30 MW to the grid.

Today, only one unit of CBK Power Company's Kalayaan hydro-electric plant is expected to run at 152 MW in the morning and afternoon. By evening, two units will already be operational. A third unit is still unavailable because of low elevation at Caliraya Lake.

NGCP will continue to monitor power grid conditions. As System Operator, it operates the power system or grid in accordance with the Philippine Grid Code. It is also the country's only utility responsible for transmitting high-voltage power from generators to distributors. NGCP does not own nor operate and maintain any power generation and distribution facilities. (PIA 2) [top]
