Parts of Metro Manila experience three-hour brownouts

Daily brownouts lasting up to three hours in some parts of Metro Manila may be experienced in the next five days, energy officials said Monday.

Expected to take place anytime between 10 AM to 10 PM, power outages were caused by problems with two major power plants, Dina Lomotan, a spokesperson for Meralco, said in an interview on dzBB radio.

Among the affected areas include Las Piñas, Makati, Malabon, Parañaque, Quezon City, Valenzuela, Muntinlupa, Pasig, Pateros and Taguig, a separate Balitanghali report on Monday said.

The National Grid Corp. of the Philippines (NGCP) advised Meralco of problems at the Masinloc and Sual power plants only on Sunday night, Lomotan added.

The NGCP runs the country’s power grid, transmitting electricity from power plants to utilities such as Meralco.
