DAVAO CITY — Power consumers in Sasa and Bunawan areas here will experience a 10-minute power interruption on Thursday, July 14.

The Davao Light and Power Co. announced on Tuesday, July 12 that it will conduct a 10-minute power interruption anytime between 4:00 am to 5:00 am affecting customers in the northern part of the franchise.

Customers affected by the power interruption are those from PLDT Sasa up to Bunawan including DPWH Office, Panacan Proper, Tibungco, and along Diversion Road up to Jose Maria College.

Rossano Luga, assistant vice president for Reputation Enhancement Department, said the service disruption is necessary “to facilitate the normalization or return of loads back to Davao Light’s Don Ramon Substation after recently being transferred to nearby lines to conduct upgrading works on the said substation.”

Luga said the DLPC will “exert all efforts to restore electric service as scheduled or earlier.”

“However, there may be instances where restoration may extend beyond the schedule due to unavoidable circumstances,” he said. (
