The areas with power faults are Valhalla Park, Kosovo, Hanover Park, Samora Machel and Heideveld.

The city says teams are attending to all faults and are unable to give the estimated time of power restoration.

‘There are a number of areas across the metro which are currently experiencing unplanned outages. Our teams are attending to these and we thank our customers for their understanding.

‘Customers should please bear in mind that storms can cause area outages, which take longer to resolve. These are especially caused by trees and shrubs growing into electricity infrastructure. Added to this, Covid-19 continues to have an impact on operations. City teams will continue to do everything in their power to attend to outages in the shortest possible time. It is often not possible to give an exact time for restoration where damage to infrastructure is involved and where an outage affects a large area,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Energy and Climate Change, Councillor Phindile Maxiti.

The city encourages residents to report electricity outage faults in their areas.
