Following a power outage in George South which has affected Palgrave, Merriman, Wentzel and Newston Street yesterday a second larger circuit breaker was installed last night at 20:30 and power was restored. The circuit breaker however tripped again after 21:00.
Tests have been done on the mains and they are clear of any faults. The electricians are now having to test the cables leading to each house in the area of Palgrave and Newton Street as it is clearly an isolated section that is causing the problem.
We apologize for this issue and urge affected residents to please bear with us as while we are testing for the fault, the power will continue to go off and on.
