Cape Town does not perform maintenance while Tier 3 and above load shedding is active.
As previously reported, the City of Cape Town says its routine infrastructure maintenance is how it is able to ensure residents have access to a reliable supply of electricity.
Residents are advised to turn off appliances at the wall outlet before servicing to reduce potential damage that could be caused by power surges.
“We encourage residents to always check the City’s social media channels to see if their area will be affected by regular electrical maintenance during the week.
“Where customers are affected by supply disruptions due to normal maintenance, they should receive door-to-door notice prior to scheduled work,” the City of Cape Town said.
