CEBU CITY—A portion of southern Cebu will not have power for about 10 hours on Dec. 4 due to the ongoing work on the transmission line in the area, according to an official of the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) said.

Ma. Rosette Martinez, NGCP Visayas public affairs head, said the 69-kilovolt (kV)-line that connects Naga City to Sibonga town has shut down from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. to facilitate the installation of new billing meters and instrument transformers.

Affected areas include Carcar City as well as the municipalities of Sibonga, Argao, Dalaguete, Alcoy, Boljoon, Barili, Ronda, Alcantara, and the greater part of Moalboal, which are served by Cebu I Electric Cooperative (CEBECO I).

While the NGCP was working on the line, Martinez said the distribution utility also took the opportunity to do maintenance activities in their distribution lines.

The official said power is expected to be restored once the work has been completed.
“We will energize the line again when both groups are finished. It is possible that the power might come back even before 5 p.m.” she said.
