Thursday, 9 December 2021: Electricity supply to Tembisa substation has been affected due to a failed transformer that supplies the City of Ekurhuleni’s (CoE) Tembisa customers.
Eskom has submitted an application for a permit to the Traffic Department to transport the transformer to Tembisa substation. We are therefore awaiting approvals from the authorities for the permit, in order to start the supply restoration process. The estimated time of restoration is 18 December 2021.
Eskom apologises for the inconvenience caused, as it works on restoring supply to the affected substation.
We are engaging the CoE and we will continue to communicate as more information becomes available. CoE customers are advised to contact the municipality directly for all their electricity-related enquiries. The municipality can be contacted on telephone number: 0860 543 000, or the City’s website: www.ekurhuleni.gov.za or their customer contact centres.
