NGCP reduces 'Yellow Alert' intervals for Visayas grid on May 15

THE National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) announced a reduction in yellow alert intervals for the Visayas grid at 1:45 p.m. on May 15, 2024.

The yellow alert was initially scheduled for 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. 

However, due to the availability of Cebu Energy Development Corporation (CEDC) Unit 1 and Panay Diesel Power Plants 1-3, the alert intervals were reduced.

During the yellow alert, the available capacity in the Visayas grid was 2,968 megawatts (MW), while the peak demand was 2,646 MW. 

A yellow alert is issued when the grid's operating margin falls below the minimum requirement to ensure stable power transmission in case of unexpected outages.
