Electricity utility, Eskom, will on Sunday 16 August 2020 start implementing load reduction during the morning peak hours in the Fezile Dabi District. According to a statement this is to avoid overloading the Eskom network and damage to their infrastructure in high-density areas that are prone to network overloading.
Eskom has urged customers not to log a fault during the load reduction periods and treat all installations as live and dangerous. The implementation of load reduction will take effect from 06:00 until 09:00. The area said to be affected in Fezile Dabi is Refengkgotso.
