Some parts of Tarlac province will experience a nine-hour power interruption on Thursday, according to the National Grid Corp. of the Philippines (NGCP).
The areas that will be affected by the 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. scheduled power outage are those being serviced by the Tarlac Electric Cooperative, Inc. II (TARELCO II), NGCP regional communications and public affairs officer, Ernest Vidal, said.
Vidal said the scheduled power interruption is due to the refilling of insulating gas and leak verification on the power circuit breaker, which will be done simultaneously with TARELCO II’s maintenance works along the Concepcion-La Paz 69kV line.
He however assured that NGCP will exert all efforts to restore power earlier, or as scheduled. (PNA) CVL/ZST/EG
