Power supply interrupted
BY ADRIAN NEMES III
Power supply was interrupted yesterday in areas in Negros Occidental and Oriental where electricity had already been restored because of the load shedding being implemented by the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines, its corporate communications head, Elmer Cruz, told the DAILY STAR.
Cruz said that there was a need to implement manual load dropping due to the inability of the 285 megawatt Unified Leyte plant to contribute power to the Visayas grid.
Many of their transmission lines toppled by the typhoon have not yet been fixed, causing supply deficiency, he said.
