Khayelitsha residents to experience load reduction on Tuesday evening

Khayelitsha residents will experience load reduction between 5-9p.m on Tuesday evening.

In a statement, Eskom says load reduction is necessary to protect Eskom’s assets by reducing electricity load during peak hours in high-density areas, which Eskom says is overloading the network.

It added that network overloading causes damages to electricity infrastructure through explosions of transformers, mini substations and poses danger to individuals

The ailing parastatal says it is battling to keep up with the increased impact of illegal connections and tampering, as well as the equipment failure caused by overloading.

The areas affected in Khayelitsha includes Site C, D, DT, and CT sections

Eskom says customers from the affected areas are asked not to log a fault during 5-9 on Tuesday evening.
