Eskom

Eskom continues with its drive to interrupt power supply to those areas that are in breach of payment.

After seven days of scheduled electricity supply interruptions due to non-payment, Renosterberg Local Municipality has still not paid the amounts required for Eskom to suspend the interruptions.

As a result, the utility intensified interruptions as of yesterday.

Scheduled supply interruptions were implemented on 27 June 2018 due to Renosterberg Local Municipality’s failure to honour its Eskom account for the bulk supply of electricity.  
Phillipstown, Petrusville and Vanderkloof are affected by the interruptions. 
 

The interruptions are effected based on the schedule below.

Week 2 times will be implemented from 4 July 2018. If no agreement is reached by Tuesday, 10 July 2018, a daily 14 hour interruption will be executed, the utility said on Tuesday.

Negotiations between Eskom and Renosterberg Local Municipality continue.
