City Power is currently experiencing a major outage in the South of Johannesburg including Pennyville, Mayfair and the surrounding areas. This has occurred after a total loss of supply on an 88kv (Kilovolts) line that supplies Orlando which in turn affected close to 10 substations in the south of Johannesburg.

 

Preliminary investigations suggest that an overload is suspected as the cause of the power outage.

 

City Power technicians are busy with isolation and repairs of the substations affected by the power outage.

  • Rand Water Board
  • Eikenhof
  • Kibler Park
