Section of Greenacres without power

OCTOBER 13, 2015

Update: all supply restored to Greenacres. 

No, its not Eskom load shedding. The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality on Tuesday advised that their staff were attending to power outages around the Greenacres area after a substation tripped.

"At Greenacres substation, the Nile Road substation tripped affecting a section of Greenacres surrounds," the Municipality said.

The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality said its technicians were attending to the outage but could not give a timeframe.

On Saturday morning, Rowellan park, Summerstrand, Seaview and large parts of the Western suburbs, were without power following a problem at a Substation in Rowallan Park.

Meanwhile, Eskom on Monday said there was a low chance of load shedding as the power grid was stable.
