LOAD REDUCTION - GAUTENG
Tuesday, 30 June 2020: We are implementing load reduction from 17:00 – 22:00 to avoid network overloading in high density areas that are prone to illegal connections, meter bypasses and vandalism of electricity infrastructure.

During the load reduction implementation, customers are urged to switch off all their electrical appliances to avoid power surges when power returns.  Failure to do so may lead to transformer trips or failures, and damages to household appliances when supply is restored. 
 
Please do not log a fault during this period. 
Report illegal connections on the Eskom Crime-Line number: 0800 11 27 22.
