MANILA - Parts of Negros Oriental will experience an 11-hour power outage this long weekend as distributors facilitate maintenance activities, the National Grid Corp. (NGCP) said Thursday.

In a Facebook post, the NGCP said power would be cut from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday in NORECO I (Bais, Bindoy and Guihulngan substations) and NORECO II (Tanjay substation).


NGCP said the power cut-off was necessary for maintenance activities along the Amlan-Guihulngan line.
