11-hour power outage to hit parts of Ecija

CABANATUAN CITY - Several parts of Nueva Ecija will experience electric power service interruption on Friday due to on-going works by the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines.

NGCP communications lead specialist Ernest Vidal yesterday said those affected are the Nueva Ecija Electric Cooperative II-Area 1 (Muñoz Science City, Guimba, Quezon, Lupao and Carranglan substation), including the San Jose City Electric Cooperative (SAJELCO) and the Pantabangan Municipal Electric System (PAMES).

He said these areas will be hit by an 11-hour power outage starting from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m.

Vidal said a 30-minute brownout will also be experienced in the service areas covered by NEECO II-Area 1 (Aliaga substation) starting 7 a.m. to 7:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. until 6 p.m..

The NGCP said the power interruption is caused by the ongoing works along the San Pascual-Fatima 69KV line.
