UPDATE: ESKOM POWER OUTAGE IN WILDERNESS AND SURROUNDS
Wilderness and surrounds experienced an unexpected power outage due to a fault on an Eskom power line.
Eskom could not locate the fault up to now. The George Municipality’s Electro-Tech Department which is responsible for electricity supply in the City has, meanwhile, provided an alternative power supply in the whole Wilderness area, while Eskom is still attending to the situation. We would like to urge all consumers to use electricity sparingly.
This temporary alternative power supply will certainly not be able to carry the demand tomorrow morning, therefore, a rotational load shedding will be implemented in Wilderness to ensure some continuity of power supply.
THE FOLLOWING ROTATIONAL LOAD SHEDDING WILL BE IMPLEMENTED IN THE WILDERNESS AREA:
(Please note that this is an emergency schedule, which means that it may or may not be implemented depending on real-time loading).
OFF 7AM- 8AM:
Kleinkrans, Langvlei Dunes & Pinedew
Hoekwil, Kerk Str line up to Valley Road
Hoekwil, post office up to Platrug weg
Wilderness heights, from heights road up to 10 Myl laan
Should we find the load to be too high at an earlier stage, we may have to implement rotational load shedding at an earlier time, and all time slots will automatically move backwards from the initial start time and will approximately be an hour long each time.
