City Power is responsible for providing
electrical services to property owners in the City of Johannesburg that are not
serviced by Eskom. To determine if you are a City Power customer you can check
your existing City of Johannesburg invoice and see if you are being billed for
electricity. If you don't have an invoice or
if you don't have a service connection you can check the township list, it will
indicate in whose supply area the property is.
The service connections we provide are
divided into two categories namely Small Power Users (SPU) and Larger Power
A Small Power User is defined as a user
who has an electrical service connection no greater than 56 kVA (3 phase, 80
ampere). In general most households would have this type of service connection.
A Large Power User is defined as a user
who has an electrical service connection larger than 56 kVA. In general these
type of connections are used for medium and large commercial or industrial
consumers as well as high density residential developments.
We want to provide property owners with the services they require in as short a
time as possible To assist with this the
information and documents required to make an application for electrical
services are detailed in the documents on this webpage.
