Engr. Jude Sanchez, the power firm's General Manager, said, “Despite the present load curtailment in the Mindanao grid, there will be enough power needed in the conduct of the elections. However, in the event that the power supply from NGCP will not be available we will be contented with our embedded Power Plant capacity to be shared and distributed among our customers.  And, there will also be no scheduled power interruptions during the Election Day. The company will also do its best to avoid unscheduled power interruptions during and after the election. “
