Power outage in Despatch

A planned electricity shutdown of the Kouga area from the Grassridge substation by electricity utility Eskom on Saturday will also affect the Despatch area from 5am to 6pm.

"All the areas without electricity during the refurbishment of the Kudu substation recently will once again be affected because the Nelson Mandela Bay town was added to the line feeding the Kouga area," the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality said.

The following areas feeding from San Souci substation will not be affected by the electricity outage:

  1. Daleview
  2. Reservoir Hills
  3. Khayamnandi
  4. 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."
