The City of Cape Town does not carry out maintenance while Stage 3 load shedding and above is active.
As previously reported, the City of Cape Town said its routine maintenance of infrastructure is how it is able to ensure that residents have access to a reliable supply of electricity.
Residents are advised to switch off appliances at the wall socket ahead of the maintenance to reduce the potential damage that could be caused by power surges.
“We encourage residents to always double check on the City’s social media channels to see if their area will be affected by the regular electricity maintenance during the week.
“Where customers are affected by supply interruptions due to normal maintenance, they should receive a door-to-door notice ahead of the planned work,” said the City of Cape Town.
