We have already restored power supply in a number of storm affected areas across the city and we will continue to do our best to restore supply in the remaining affected areas. Damaged infrastructure typically takes some time to repair. Inclement weather leads to high service request volumes and longer outage durations. Where damage to infrastructure is concerned, it is unfortunately not possible to give accurate restoration times. We thank residents for their patience while we attend to all repairs.</p><p>'Residents are reminded to only use one reporting channel when reporting faults to the City so that delays in attending to duplicate service requests are avoided as far as possible,' said the City's Mayoral Committee Member for Energy, Councillor Beverley van Reenen.</p><p><strong>The City apologises for any inconvenience.</strong></p><p><strong>For service requests (please only log on one channel):</strong></p><p><strong>Call Centre: 0860 103 089</strong></p><p><strong>SMS: 31220 (Please note the free SMS service does not apply)</strong></p><p><strong>Email: </strong><a href="mailto:power@capetown.gov.za" target="_blank"><strong>power@capetown.gov.za</strong></a></p><p><strong>e-Services: </strong><a href="http://www.capetown.gov.za/servicerequests" target="_blank"><strong>www.capetown.gov.za/servicerequests</strong></a></p><p> </p><p><strong>End</strong></p><p><br></p>2024-04-07T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#11d25863-9b43-4241-bd2a-449c8b2013bb;L0|#011d25863-9b43-4241-bd2a-449c8b2013bb|emergencies;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#7683cb69-d855-498f-94a4-dd6c3e01c2a1;L0|#07683cb69-d855-498f-94a4-dd6c3e01c2a1|Service Request10
