Power distribution firm Manila Electric Company has assured the public that power outages being experienced are due to service maintenance.
“Walang power supply shortage,” said Meralco Spokesperson Joe Zaldarriaga.
The service maintenance is part of Meralco’s efforts to improve their services, as well as to ensure that there will be an adequate supply come summer season.
Zaldarriaga also mentioned that power outages on certain areas usually last for 30 minutes to 8 hours depending of the nature of work.
“Subalit, hindi ito malawakan. Certain areas lang po ito at once na nagkaroon ng interruption for a very long time hindi na po ulit ito mauulit,” he added.
The scheduled power outages are announced ahead of time, which can be found on Meralco’s Facebook page and Twitter account.
