Department of Energy (DOE) issued show-cause orders to five power plants in Luzon following the recent series of power reserves depletion.

Asked to explain were Sual Unit 1 in Pangasinan; SLPGC Unit 2 and SLTEC Unit 1 in Batangas; Pagbilao Unit 3 in Quezon and Calaca Unit 2 in Batangas which is reportedly limiting its generation of 200-megawatt capacity.

“Show cause orders are already out,” said Energy spokesperson Wimpy Fuentebella.

Fuentebella said, they “want to clarify what’s happening with them,” and why zero ancillary services or a generation deficiency exists.

Earlier, National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) placed Luzon Grid under Red Alert due to outages of some power plants.
