Areas affected by required routine electricity maintenance for next week, 17 - 23 January 2022<p>Routine regular planned maintenance takes place daily in various areas across the metro. The City informs residents that maintenance will take place to allow them time to plan for the outage and to allow our teams sufficient time to complete the required maintenance tasks. Routine maintenance is also preceded by a door-to-door pamphlet drop. </p><p>PLANNED ROUTINE ELECTRICITY MAINTENANCE 17 – 23 January 2022</p><p>The areas that will be affected by the routine electricity supply interruptions due to necessary maintenance are:</p><table width="100%" class="ms-rteTable-default" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default" style="width:25%;"><strong>DATE</strong></td><td class="ms-rteTable-default" style="width:25%;"><strong>AREA AND LOCATION/STREET</strong></td><td class="ms-rteTable-default" style="width:25%;"><strong>START</strong></td><td class="ms-rteTable-default" style="width:25%;"><strong>COMPLETION FORECAST</strong></td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default"><strong>18 January</strong></td><td class="ms-rteTable-default"><strong>Somerset West: </strong>Helderberg College, Richter, Saint Emillion, Acacia, Shiraz and Steen</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default"><strong>08:00</strong></td><td class="ms-rteTable-default"><strong>18:00</strong></td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default"><strong>19 January</strong></td><td class="ms-rteTable-default"><strong>Bishops Court:</strong> Upper Norren, Bertha, Princess, Balfour, Noreen, Isabel and Angelina</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default"><strong>09:00</strong></td><td class="ms-rteTable-default"><strong>15:30</strong></td></tr><tr><td class="ms-rteTable-default"><strong>23 January</strong></td><td class="ms-rteTable-default"><strong>Claremont: </strong>Barons VW, Pinetree, Basset, Hampstead and vicinity</td><td class="ms-rteTable-default"><strong>06:00</strong></td><td class="ms-rteTable-default"><strong>16:00</strong></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>*Information is complete and correct at time of publication, but subject to change due to weather and other unforeseen conditions.<br>*It is standard practice to notify customers of planned maintenance via a pamphlet delivered door-to-door ahead of work. </p><p>Tips:<br>• Where possible, please switch off appliances at the wall socket ahead of maintenance to reduce the risk of damage caused by power surges.<br>• The supply could be restored at any time, therefore residents should remember to treat all electrical installations as live for the full duration of the interruption.</p><p>Does planned maintenance take place during Eskom’s load-shedding?<br>Yes. It is vital that the maintenance work is done, and as Eskom’s load-shedding announcements are done at such short notice, it unfortunately does happen that some areas will have a double impact of load-shedding and planned maintenance work on a given day, especially during the lower stages of load-shedding. From load-shedding Stage 4, planned maintenance is usually stopped due to the staff capacity required to implement load-shedding. Capacity might necessitate the stopping of maintenance work at lower stages too. It thus all depends on the situation at hand. Unfortunately in certain instances due to safety issues, we also have to continue with the planned maintenance otherwise bigger areas would have to be switched off at one time to still effect the necessary maintenance in the same timeframe, which would not be ideal. </p><p>Please note: Service requests typically increase during Eskom’s load-shedding. Please wait at least 30 minutes to report no power after the scheduled end of load-shedding. </p><p>City’s service channels (don't log the same request multiple times on multiple channels as this contributes to delays):<br>Call Centre: 0860 103 089<br>SMS: 31220 (standard charges apply)<br>Online: <a href=""></a></p><p> </p><p> </p>2022-01-13T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#8d25a44c-752c-4a86-bc47-c45a7cc51a26;L0|#08d25a44c-752c-4a86-bc47-c45a7cc51a26|Load shedding;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#0c4188de-8fd0-4c65-ad50-f8de6fb0dd9c;L0|#00c4188de-8fd0-4c65-ad50-f8de6fb0dd9c|repairs and maintenance10
