ESKOM TO PROCEED WITH PLANNED DISCONTINUATION OF SUPPLY TO KAMIESBERG LOCAL MUNICIPALITY
MONDAY, 17 FEBRUARY 2020: As announced in a media statement issued on 11 February 2020, electricity supply services to Kamiesberg Local Municipality in the Northern Cape will be discontinued on 18 February 2020 due to the Municipality’s breach of payment conditions concluded with Eskom. 
 
Electricity consumers in Garies, Kroonsig, Kamieskroon, Kheis, Nourivier, Paulshoek, Spoegrivier, Lepelsfontein and Klipfontein will be impacted. 
 
A notice of Eskom’s intention to discontinue supply to Kamiesberg Local Municipality on 18 February 2020 was issued to the Municipality on 03 February 2020.  Since then, no progress has been made, leaving Eskom no other option than to continue with the implementation of these measures. 
 
The discontinuation of electricity supply will result in temporary scheduled disconnection at the following times:
 
18 FEBRUARY 2020 UNTIL BREACH IS REMEDIED
Monday to Sunday
06h00 – 20h00
 
Notwithstanding the above proposed indicative times for the discontinuation of supply, Eskom may, upon seven calendar days’ notice, serve the notice to terminate electricity supply services entirely and indefinitely should the municipalities’ debt situation not improve.
 
Eskom advises all parties who are likely to be materially and adversely affected by the withholding of electricity supply services to take all necessary precautions to ensure safety of lives and to limit damages to their equipment, operations and business.
 
For more information and updates, contact the Eskom Contact Centre on 08600 37566.
