“According to the DOE report, there are several new power sources that will be inaugurated soon. The DOE is confident that we will not have any problem come election day,” Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles said over the weekend.
“I think that was the worst incident that may happen in the summer months. Everything now is… we are also looking at contingencies on the uninterruptable load program,” he said.
