The Power Utility, Eskom, will implement load reduction today, 19 November 2020. The load reduction will be implemented from 17:00 to 22:00.

Areas affected will be Kaalfontein, Ebony Park, Ivory Park, Lindokuhle, Tswelopelo and Rabie Ridge.

The load reduction is supposedly implemented to avoid network overloading in high density areas with high instances of illegal connections and meter bypassing.

During the load reduction implementation, customers are urged to switch off all their electrical appliances to avoid possible damage due to power surges when electricity is restored. Failure to do so may lead to transformer failures and damages to electrical appliances.

Communities are encouraged to report meter bypasses , illegal connections and vandalism of the electricity infrastructure on the Eskom Crime Line number 0800 11 27 22.
