NGCP announces brownout on April 16 in Rinconada

IRIGA CITY—Parts of the Camarines Sur III Electric Cooperative (CASURECO III) franchise areas will experience a power interruption tomorrow, April 16, from 10 AM to 4 PM.

This was announced by the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines in a media advisory this afternoon.

This interruption will "facilitate maintenance works shutdown along Naga-Daraga 230kv Transmission Line," the advisory read.

"Specific cities and municipalities [that] may be affected are determined by the distribution utility unless the activity [will] have an effect on the entire franchise area," it added.

Meanwhile, former Iriga City Mayor Madelaine Alfelor-Gazmen clarified on Facebook that the power interruption is not a disconnection.

It would be recalled that areas serviced by CASURECO III had been suffering from power cuts recently due to the cooperative's financial troubles.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
