ESKOM POWER UPDATE Saturday 8 May
ESKOM has advised George Municipality that repairs to the faulty line to the Wilderness substation will only commence tommorow, Sunday 9 May with no current completion time available. The faulty line is located in a difficult site.
George Municipality is going to try and pick up the load as much as possible, and have managed to return power to Wilderness Heights already. However, in order for this to work they need the houses that do have power to reduce their load as much as possible to avoid continuous tripping. Please note this will still only cover about 25% of Wilderness and there are certain areas it is not possible for George to cover due to distance.
