ADVISORY: Snake Causes Unscheduled Power Interruption today, May 8, 2018

Please be advised of an unscheduled power interruption affecting a greater part of Cepalco franchise area at 4:08am, May 8, 2018 due to an electrocuted snake which triggered a line fault at our 69kV insulator at Luz Banzon, Jasaan resulting to a flashover causing the tripping of our M2 Aplaya primary line. All feeders affected were restored at 6:25am, May 8, 2018.

Photo shows the snake that climbed up a 69kV pole of CEPALCO in Luz Banzon, Jasaan which triggered the line fault resulting to the unscheduled power interruption early this morning, May 8, affecting various areas in the CEPALCO service area.

Our sincere apologies for the inconvenience.

Thank you for your kind understanding.

CEPALCO Management
