MANILA, Jan 17 — A brown-out will be experienced in Eastern Samar this Saturday, the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) announced.

In a notice posted on its website, NGCP said its transmission facilities being used by the Eastern Samar Electric Cooperative, Inc. (ESAMELCO) will be shut-down from 8am to 5pm on January 19, 2013 to make way for the “maintenance activity along Wright-Taft-Borongan-McArthur 69kV transmission line.”

”Normal operations will immediately resume after work completion,” it said.

NGCP advised affected consumers “to take the necessary preparations and precautions for this scheduled interruption.” (PNA)
