In an advisory, Davao Light said this will be implemented today, July 30, and will only be lifted once the “supply situation improves.”
This, according to the company, is because of the “continuous reduction of power supply from the generating plants…”
Davao City has experienced new rounds of rotational blackouts to up 2 hours starting July 21.
“Davao Light apologizes to its customers for the inconvenience that these service disruptions may have caused them. It also encourages everyone to be prudent in the use of energy to help minimize the effects of the current power situation,” said the company.
This announcement came only three after the company, in a press release dated July 27, said that the because of the “favorable weather and the higher allocation of power given by the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines, Davao Light customers may continue to experience shorter or no rotating power interruptions for the day.”
But the said release also said that “if one of the generating power plants will undergo emergency shutdown, rotating power interruptions will be implemented based on the announced duration.”
“Hence, for reference, Davao Light provides its rotating power interruptions for the week,” it added. | JMT, NewsDesk
