6-Hours-Straight Twice Daily Brownouts Schedule in GenSan!
From a faxed message from SOCOTECO II, is the notice that effective May 17, 2010, there is a revised schedule of Power Interruptions in General Santos City.
First, the good news! Brownouts will now occur twice daily instead of the usual three or four times a day.
But the bad news is, these rotational brownouts will happen on a straight six hour basis!!!
To understand why this is being done, here is the POWER ADVISORY from the Manager of the Institutional Services Department of SOCOTECO II and the REVISED GENSAN BROWNOUT SCHEDULE.

So here is what you do. Look for your the area where you live in the next table. Find out if you belong to GROUP A or GROUP B. Now, check for your schedule from the TABLE above.
I guess all we have to do is to continue stocking up on candles and other primitive lighting methods. Or if we have the money, buy additional rechargeable emergency lamps/fans/lights.
Those are the only things we could do given this worsening situation.
Or better still, with the leadership of Bariles, do a simultaneous RAIN DANCE ala Sarah Geronimo‘s at the OVAL PLAZA and break a world record too, for that matter.
