Eskom has postponed scheduled interruption of bulk power supply to defaulting municipalities in the Free State and North West.
Eskom has postponed to mid-January the scheduled interruption of bulk electricity supply to defaulting municipalities in the Free State and North West provinces. The power interruption was initially planned for tomorrow.
After careful consideration of the impact of the public holidays over the festive period, and the commit¬ment made in court today during the AfriForum case, Eskom has decided to postpone the interruption of supply to these municipalities from 5 January 2017 to 16 January 2017. This will allow all impacted stakeholders more time to prepare accordingly.
Eskom hopes that the affected municipalities will use this opportunity to make payment arrangements.
The seven affected municipalities in the Free State are:
• Dihlabeng, and
The three municipalities in the North West are Naledi, Mamusa, and Ventersdorp.
