SOCOTECO II Schedule of Browouts in GenSan/ List of Feeders

For the sake of all the weary and pissed off victims of the brownouts and blackouts in General Santos City, GenSan News Online Mag is releasing the Schedule of Power Interruptions or Load Sheddings (see below) furnished by SOCOTECO II.

But before that, they are advised to check first the Feeder # to which they belong.  Check out the list of feeders below, which were divided into Groups A and B.

Find out whether your Feeder belongs to either GROUP A or GROUP B.

Feeders Group a & B

Below is the Weekly Shedding Schedule (Brownouts) of SOCOTECO II in GenSan.

  1. Scroll down to check your Feeder’s SYMBOL :  BOX (Group A) or DIAMOND (Group B).

  2. Look for your corresponding symbols on the table of brownout schedules (Load Shedding) below.

  3. That is your supposedly BROWNOUT schedules for the week.

Good luck!  Now you know when to prepare your brownout kits (candles, lamps, generators, cardboard fans) or when to head out to the nearest mall to pass off the heat.

    hehe buti na lang po nag “disclaimer” kayo kasi malamang ang daming magrereklamo gawa ng hindi na yata nasusunod ang naayon sa naitalang scheduling. ^-^

  3. donna Mae says:

    WHAT???!!! 4 brownouts a day na???????

  4. joannah says:

    This is good only if this is exactly the schedule of the brown outs…We might end up preparing for something we have not prepared…

    Thanks pa rin avel…

    Thanks for posting. So until what month pa ba ang brownout sa south cotabato. Mabuti pa ang Luzon and Visayas walang brownout, yet tayo wala pa rin solution ang national government.

  7. pol says:

    salamat po!!!
    very helpful..
    but then minsan hindi naman nasusunod!

    1. bariles says:

      @Guys, last night di nasunod ang schedule sa Feeder namin. Instead of a brownout at 10pm, tuloy-tuloy ang ilaw until mag-umaga na. Now, if these are the unannounced changes in their original skeds, then Socoteco II has my permission to do it again and again. 🙂

    informative po, thanks.

  9. Dodong says:

    Heard from those passing the Pulangi Hydropower at Quezon, Bukidnon that water level is sufficient. Why then a 12hr brown out by SOCOTECO?
    Game of the Generals: Does Socoteco collaborate with the proposed coal powered electric plant so that it will be approved against the on going green environment & climate change?
    Ahahhh! ?

  10. Toinks says:

    @Dodong: thats is why nga po it is really smelling fishy, i mean disgustingly fissshhhhy so to speak. Not to mention it has been continually raining in northern Mindanao the past weeks. How come the hydropower plants still drying up? Kung kaya hindi tayo masyado inuulan dito sa Gensan ay kasi ang daming EWAN!

  11. zari says:

    well, i dont believe this brouhaha… kung kelan naman kasi election don pa nagkaka black out…ow come on… we are not born yesterday! mind-setting? blackout means easy cheating this coming election!!

    hay naku hindi pa rin nagbabago ang mga kampon ng kadiliman!

  12. Kai says:

    Hi Dodong
    take a look at this picture you find under this link. You will see, that the lake is empty. Just near the dam is a bit of water.

    However what i don’t understand is the sharing of the available power. Other Cities have much less brownouts than South Cotabato.

    Davao 2-3 hours
    CDO 3-4 hours
    Butuan 3-4 hours
    Surigao City 4-5 hours
    Kidapawan none since 3 weeks
    Gingoog none since 2 weeks
    Gensan 6-9 hours
    Ozamis 8 hours
    Marbel 8 hours

    Why does South Cotabato und Ozamis have more brownouts then Davao or CDO?
    I would love to get an explanation from Napocor.
    Last, but not least, the blame belongs to the government and our seemingly incompetent energy secretary. As early as 2007 warnings were given about coming brownouts, because of insufficient power supply. To blame El Nino alone is nonsense. Dry season is every year and it is not the first time, that our hydro-electric plants do have not enough water. El Nino is not a new weather situation, but occurs every 5-6 years. Things like that are supposed to be anticipated by the people, who are respomsible. Alas they did not.
    No solutions are visible on the horizon. No gen sets have eased the daily suffering of the people. In Novaliches are 4 power barges with a capacity of 480 Megawatts. They are idle. If brought here, we would have sufficient power since late February with 1-2 hours brownouts daily.
    The brownouts are here to stay. Even after the lakes are full of water again, we will have brownouts of 1-2 hours at least until 2012/13.
    We have to get used to it and I hope people will vote wiser this time around.
    After all we had the same situation way back from 1990-1994. Here was also incompetence of the people in power the reason in the same way ,as it is today.

    What! Grabe ang GENSAN…

  14. Kai says:

    I just llearned, that Zamboanga City has also only 3-4 hours daily brownouts.

    Why does Socoteco not make any Statement to this.

    Hi Barilis
    maybe you could ask Socoteco for the reasons.
    Thank you

  15. fahdingding says:

    lagi..dnh sa MINDANAO! GENSAN jud pinaka – taas ug duration sa brownout usahay 6 – 9 hours… sa uban brgys kay 12 hours jud! kapait!

  16. gogo says:

    hoi rodolfo ocat gago

  17. Kai says:

    I just heard, that starting monday brownouts shall last 12 hours. Each brownout shall last 6 hours. After one week of no brownout it is simply not understandable anymore, what happens here.
    Can anybody confirm this?

    1. bariles says:

      @Kai, please read the article above and all the comments here first. Thanks.

  18. lady_gaga says:

    brownout na nmn sa lunes.. lagi nlng wlay bay solution ani wla dyod mabuhat ning mga politcs diri sa gensan.. abi nako yaman gensan.. bliktad na diay.. POBRE D GENSAN. sus kawawa nmn mga negosyo palugi na mataas pa ang tax.. malaki rin ang bayaran sa kurynte..

  19. Kai says:

    hi bariles
    I had read everything before i wrote and i know by now, that it was the plan starting tomorrow. However Socoteco suspendet it and resumes the power curtailment in the same way as before.
    What i really would like to know, is where the power in the last nine days came from. After all, in those nine days we did not have a single brownout.
    And I am asking myself why we have to suffer again.
