Low power supply looms over Luzon grid this weekend

Philippines: The Department of Energy (DOE) expects a waning power supply situation in the Luzon grid this weekend as a result of restricted inputs from the Malampaya gas-to-power facility.

"For Saturday and Sunday, there will be another set of planned reduction of supply due to the gas restriction from the Malampaya," the department said on Friday.

Despite the lower supply of electricity, the DOE is not expecting any brownout because of the corresponding lower demand during the weekend.

"The power situation may not be affected because there is an anticipated reduction on the demand for electricity," it said.

The National Grid Corp. of the Philippines power situation outlook for the Luzon grid on Saturday placed the available capacity at 9,242 megawatts (MW), with a peak demand of 8,576 megawatts and a reserve level of 666 MW.

“We are in close coordination with our energy stakeholders to normalize the power situation in the Luzon grid. We also appeal to our dear consumers to use energy wisely and assist in stabilizing energy situation,” Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi said.
