Cagayan and Apayao to experience 10-hour power outage Thursday

TUGUEGARAO CITY — The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) is set to implement a 10- hour power outage on Feb. 9, 2017 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. in some parts of Cagayan and Apayao provinces.

Lilibeth Gaydowen, NGCP corporate communication and public affairs officer said the Cagayan Electric Cooperative 1 (CAGELCO I)-Alcala Substation, the entire Cagayan Electric Cooperative 11 (CAGELCO II) and Apayao Electric Cooperative (PAELCO) franchise areas will be affected.

The temporary power outage, Gaydowen said, will be implemented to give way for the replacement of selected wood poles and other line hardwares serving these electric cooperatives.

She said normal operations will resume immediately after work completion.
