Gov’t OKs plan to ease power crisis in Vis-Min

Posted by akosistella on March 17, 2010

MANILA, Philippines–The Energy Regulatory Commission has agreed to implement a so-called interruptible load program as a stop-gap measure to alleviate the current power crisis in Visayas and Mindanao.

Covered by the program are consumers—particularly the big industrial and commercial customers—who have the ability to produce their own electricity through generating sets.

Participating customers will allow distribution utilities to either cut off or reduce the electricity being supplied to them, particularly during peak periods of the day or during emergency conditions. During these hours, “de-loaded” customers are expected to use their gensets.
