No power for 9 hours in Mabalacat on Saturday
All barangays in Mabalacat City will lose power for nine hours on July 17 from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., according to the Pampanga Electric Corporation II (Pelco 2).
The Facebook announcement said some barangays in nearby Magalang town, including Barangay Sta. Lucia and Resettlement Phases 1 and 2 will also be affected by the power outage.
The outage is due to the maintenance with the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) of corrective works between tower 70-71 located in Sapang Biabas, Mabalacat as well as Pelco 2’s testing and installation of metering facility and substation work, among others.
Since January, areas covered by Pelco 2 have several experienced emergency power interruptions because of repairs on cut primary lines, repairs on cut out fuse, correction of sagging poles, etc.
The affected coverage areas include Porac and Mabalacat, and parts of Magalang, Guagua and Bacolor.
