MANILA - The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) on Thursday placed the Luzon power grid on the second highest alert due to low reserves.

The yellow alert was raised from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m, the NGCP said on Twitter.

The unexpected shutdown and limited generation of some power plants led to low reserves, with peak demand at 9,654 megawatts against available capacity of 10,740 megawatts.
