NGCP said the deration of Masinloc 1, Masinloc 2, and Ilijan A, as well as the unavailability of Angat Main due to low water elevation, and the forced outage of Pagbilao 2 and San Lorenzo 50 plants were the factors that triggered the issuance of yellow alert.

The Visayas and Mindanao grids are under normal conditions, it said.
