In an effort to curb the non-payment of electricity by several municipalities, Eskom  had earlier notified defaulting municipalities and  their electricity customers that should payment plans not be signed and honoured, their electricity supply would be interrupted during the morning and evening peak periods from the 5 June. 
Eskom is pleased to note that significant progress has been made and that most of the municipalities now have payment plans in place. These municipalities will only have their power supply interrupted  should payment plans not be honoured and only if absolutely necessary. Eskom is anticipating payment plans from the remaining municipalities.
