The City’s Electricity Generation and Distribution Department would like to advise residents in parts of Llandudno and Hout Bay that a necessary electricity supply interruption will be carried out on Saturday, 3 December 2022, from 20:00 to 06:00 the following day or on Saturday, 10 December 2022 from 21:00 to 06:00, depending on weather conditions, but not on both days. This is critical maintenance to a major substation in the area which needs to be carried out. The maintenance work ensures reliable electricity supply for residents in the areas.
The interruption will enable City officials to carry out the necessary maintenance work at the Bisschop Main Substation.
‘The City apologises for any inconvenience caused and thanks residents for their cooperation. This particular substation supplies electricity to parts of Llandudno and Hout Bay. City teams are on the ground daily in areas across the metro to complete essential maintenance and upgrades to electricity infrastructure,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Energy, Councillor Beverley van Reenen.
