LOAD SHEDDING AND PLANNED MAINTENANCE COULD COINCIDE

The City of Cape Town said that because Eskom implements load shedding at short notice some areas could be doubly impacted by load shedding and planned maintenance power outages, especially during lower stages of load shedding.

“From load-shedding Stage 4, planned maintenance is usually stopped due to the staff capacity required to implement load-shedding. Capacity might necessitate the stopping of maintenance work at lower stages too,” said the City.

CAPE TOWN’S ELECTRICAL MAINTENANCE CONTINUES

The City said routine planned maintenance will take place on the scheduled days in various areas across the metro.
Residents are advised to switch off appliances at the wall socket ahead of the maintenance to reduce the potential damage that could be caused by power surges.
“The supply could be restored at any time, therefore residents should remember to treat all electrical installations as live for the full duration of the interruption,” said the City of Cape Town.
