DOE: No power interruptions expected today, April 17

(Eagle News)—Power interruptions are not expected today, April 17, with the Luzon grid operating under normal conditions,  the Department of Energy said.

According to the DOE, this was despite the forced outages of the SMC Consolidated Power Corporation Limay Unit 2 and the Southwest Luzon Power Generation Corporation Unit 2.

It said the SEM-Calaca Power Corporation Calaca Unit 2 was also operating on a reduced capacity.

Red and yellow alerts have been hoisted over the Luzon grid in recent days, with some parts of the country experiencing rotating brownouts.

According to the DOE, a red alert means there is a generation deficiency, while a yellow alert means the reserves were less than the capacity of the biggest power plant online.
