Eskom restores supply in parts of Soweto
Thursday 02 April 2020: Eskom has restored supply in Meadowlands, Orlando East and West, Nomzamo, Diepkloof and other parts of Soweto following outages caused by technical faults and network overloading.  Eskom conducted essential maintenance to repair the faults in the said areas and subsequently restored power to all the affected areas.
 
Eskom has not implemented loadshedding since 15 March 2020, and does not anticipate   to do so during the period of the COVID-19 national lockdown.  The power utility will continue to prioritise and respond to power failures, any emergencies posing a danger to the public, such as low-hanging conductors, essential maintenance, prepaid token-related and meter reading enquiries.
 
All Eskom Customer Service Hubs remain closed for the duration of the national lockdown.  Customers who are still experiencing power outages are advised to call the Eskom Contact Centre (0860 037 566) to report such faults.  Faults may also be reported through the Eskom App, e-mail – customerservices@eskom.co.za or via SMS on 35328. Eskom technicians are operational during the time of the national lockdown and will attend to faults reported by customers.
