MORE Cancels Scheduled 13-Hour Brownout


Iloilo’s new distribution utility MORE Electric and Power Company, locally referred to as MORE Power, recently announced that it will be cancelling its 13-hour brownout, originally scheduled to happen on June 28 (Sunday), particularly in areas serviced by the Mandurriao Substation.

“Indi madayon ang natalana nga 13-hour maximum shutdown sang Mandurriao Substation sa Domingo, 28 Hunyo 2020, para kuntani magpatigayon sang comprehensive preventive maintenance,” excerpts from an announcement posted by MORE on social media.

MORE explains that they will conduct a re-assessment and re-evaluation of the Mandurriao Substation. This is following a series of power outage last June 20. It may be recalled that the 13-hour power interruptions are part of MORE’s preventive maintenance and is said to be beneficial in the long run for the prevention of brownouts.

“Ini bangud magapatigayon anay sang re-assessment kag re-evaluation ang technical team sang MORE Electric and Power Corporation sa Mandurriao Substation kag sa distribution network sini. Kasunod ini sang unscheduled power outage sang Sabado, 20 Hunyo 2020 bangud sa tatlo (3) ka mga major faults sa Mandurriao Feeder 4 nga nagresulta sang malawig nga brownout,” the advisory adds.
