The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) has warned the public of possible power outages this Summer season.

In a statement on Monday, it said that brownouts are likely to happen after the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) had denied its request for an extension of the month-on-month ancillary services (AS) agreements.

AS supports NGCP's transmission of power from generators to consumers.

"Many of NGCP's AS agreements have expired. We have resorted to month to month extensions of our existing agreements to ensure the sufficiency of services while the procurement process is ongoing. With ERC's denial of this interim agreement, our hands are tied," it explained.

"Without an existing ASPA, NGCP cannot nominate power plants to provide the critical service," NGCP added.

The agency said it has sought help from the Department of Energy (DOE) to intervene in the situation and avert avoidable power interruptions.
