Structural damage leads to loss of supply to Meloding
THURSDAY, 6 SEPTEMBER 2018: Damage to a structure on Eskom’s Theseus – Virginia 132kV line has led to a loss of supply to Meloding Substation. 
11 000 Eskom customers in Meloding are affected by the outage.
An estimated restoration time is not yet known as Eskom’s technicians are still assessing the full extent of the damage. 
Eskom apologises for the inconvenience and urges customers in Meloding to be patient while supply is being restored. 
Electricity supply can be switched on without notice.  Customers are therefore reminded to treat all electrical sockets and appliances as live and dangerous.
