Wednesday, 05 January 2022: Eskom is implementing load reduction from 17:00 – 22:00 to avoid network overloading in high density areas.
Below is a list of some parts of affected areas:
|Main area||Sub areas|
|Soweto||Bram Fischerville, Chiawelo, Dobsonville Gardens, Doornkop, Lufhereng, Mapetla, Naledi, Protea Glen, Protea North, Protea South, and Thulani.|
During the load reduction implementation, customers are urged to switch off all their electrical appliances to avoid possible damage due to power surges when supply returns. Failure to do so may lead to transformer trips or failures, and damages to household appliances when supply is restored.
Please do not report this outage.
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.
