DAGUPAN CITY, Philippines — The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines said there will be a 10-hour power interruption in Pangasinan in the service areas covered by the Central Pangasinan Electric Corporation on Friday, February 9.

Melma Batario, NGCP corporate communications officer, said the 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. blackout will affect consumers in San Carlos City, Binmaley, Lingayen, Malasiqui, Aguilar, Urbiztondo and Mangatarem.

The outage is to allow the annual preventive maintenance and testing of the Labrador substation and the Labrador-Malasiqui 69kv line.
