Eskom switching off Despatch on Saturday during repairs in Kouga

FEBRUARY 12, 2016

The Nelon Mandela Bay Municipality says that residents from Despatch should note that there will be a planned power outage in the town for the whole day on Saturday.

"Notice is hereby given that the electricity supply to the Despatch area will be disconnected between the hours of 05:00 – 18:00 on Saturday, 13 February 2016 due to a shutdown by Eskom to the Kouga area from the Grassridge substation," the municipality said.

"Despatch will again be affected, because Despatch was added to the line affecting the Kouga area." 

However, the following areas that are feeding from San Souci substation will not be affected by the electricity outage: Daleview, Reservoir Hills, Khayamnandi and the industrial area.

"As there is no guarantee that supply will be off throughout the whole period stated, installations in all premises must be regarded as being live during these hours," the municipality advised.
