City reminds of planned required power supply interruption in Mowbray, Rondebosch

The City Electricity Generation and Distribution Department reminds residents in parts of Mowbray and Rondebosch that a planned necessary electricity interruption will be carried out on Saturday, 19 November 2022 from 21:30 to 08:00 the following day, or on Saturday, 10 December 2022 from 21:30 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 Broad Road Main Substation in Mowbray. This substation supplies parts of Mowbray and Rondebosch.
