The Department of Energy (DOE) said on Sunday that they are working “to ensure sufficient and uninterrupted power supply during the 30-day community quarantine in Metro Manila, from March 15 to April 14.

"Electric power services must remain uninterrupted. We are working closely with the members of the power sector for their respective work plans and strategies to ensure the availability of power supply, particularly in vital installations such as hospitals,” Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi said in a statement.

“At the same time, we need to ensure that power sector personnel are compliant with the directives of the DOH in order to arrest the COVID 19 situation,” he added.
