NGCP: Luzon Grid under Yellow Alert status, to be raised to Red Alert within Wednesday

The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) placed the Luzon Grid under Yellow Alert status on Wednesday morning, which will be heightened to Red Alert before noon and again in the evening.

In an advisory, the NGCP said the Luzon Grid will be placed under Yellow Alert from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m., from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., and from 11 p.m. to 12 a.m.

A yellow alert indicates that the grid has thin reserves, based on the supply and demand.

The Luzon Grid will also be placed under Red Alert from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., indicating that there is zero ancillary services or a generation deficiency exists.

Available capacity is at 11,260 megawatts while the operating requirement is at 11,976MW, resulting in an operating margin deficiency of -716. --KBK, GMA News
