There will be nine electricity supply disruptions across the City of Cape Town metropolitan area during the week of Tuesday, 19 July, as the City continues its routine electrical infrastructure maintenance programme.

 Maintenance is scheduled from Tuesday until Thursday before resuming on Sunday. There will be no power disruptions on Friday and Saturday.

“With Eskom’s load-shedding intensity reduced for now, the City of Cape Town is resuming routine electrical maintenance,” said the City.

The City does not carry out electrical maintenance when Stage 3 and above load shedding is in place.

As previously reported, the City of Cape Town said its routine maintenance of infrastructure is how it is able to ensure that residents have access to a reliable supply of electricity.

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.

“We encourage residents to always double-check on the City’s social media channels to see if their area will be affected by the regular electricity maintenance during the week.

“Where customers are affected by supply interruptions due to normal maintenance, they should receive a door-to-door notice ahead of the planned work,” said the City of Cape Town.
