“A yellow alert is issued when the operating margin is insufficient to meet the transmission grid’s contingency requirement,” the NGCP said.

A total of 16 power plants are on forced outage – one from 2022, two from 2023, two between January and March 2024, and 11 between April and May 2024.

Meanwhile, five power plants are running on derated capacity.
