George Municipality continues to temporarily supply power outage to Wilderness, following Eskom’s unexpected power outage last night into this afternoon.
According to available information, it appears that the damage on Eskom’s Transformer may take longer to repair, this means that the Municipality must continue longer to temporarily pick up the Wilderness load for the extended time, from its power system.
To ensure sustainability of the temporary pick up of Eskom’s load, the Municipality will have to do emergency works for 2,5 hours on a portion of Wilderness, to allow for this network to continue supplying the customer for the extended duration.
The switch off will take place at 09:00am on Sunday morning, 17 July 2022 until about 11:30am. The emergency work will affect the Pinedew line and Stoker line.
