Red Alert in Luzon 吕宋岛红色预警

On May 8, 2023, journalist Meg J Adonis of Inquirer reported on the red alert raised in Luzon due to insufficient power supply. The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) declared a red alert from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., with a yellow alert issued from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. A red alert means that there is not enough power supply to meet consumer demand, potentially leading to power outages. Meanwhile, a yellow alert signifies that the operating margin is insufficient to meet the transmission grid’s regulatory and contingency requirements.
2023年5月8日,《问询者报》记者Meg J Adonis报道了吕宋因电力供应不足而发出的红色警报。菲律宾国家电网公司(NGCP)宣布下午1点至4点和6点至8点发布红色警报,下午4点至6点发布黄色警报。红色警报意味着没有足够的电力供应来满足消费者需求,可能导致停电。同时,黄色警报表示运行裕度不足以满足输电网的监管和应急要求。

The Luzon grid had an available capacity of 12,186 MW, while the recorded peak demand was 12,468 MW, resulting in a 282 MW deficit. The NGCP reported that five power plants were on forced outage, and three others were running on derated capacities, causing 1,354 MW of power to be unavailable to the grid. The NGCP and the Department of Energy (DOE) have not yet released a list of the plants on forced outage.

Given the high cost of generators, it is not economically feasible to obtain one at this time. Therefore, all affected students during power interruptions will have makeup classes until we have a sufficient budget to purchase a generator and backup internet. As my services rely heavily on electricity and the Internet, this is the most viable solution for now.
