City advises of planned required power supply interruption in Muizenberg

The City’s Electricity Generation and Distribution Department would like to inform residents in Muizenberg that a planned necessary electricity interruption will be carried out on Saturday, 10 December 2022 from 21:00 to 08:00 the following day, or on Saturday, 21 January 2023 from 21:00 to 08:00, 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 interruption will enable City officials to carry out the necessary maintenance work at the Main Substation in Muizenberg. This substation supplies Muizenberg and parts of the immediate vicinity.
