Eskom explains Edenvale power outage
Edenvale has been without power since Saturday.
JOHANNESBURG - Power utility Eskom said on Sunday that cable and equipment theft was the reason behind the power outage at an Edenvale sub-station.
The area has been without power since Saturday night and residents have been urged to be patient as Eskom attends to the matter.
Eskom said it hoped to have power restored completely by 8:00 pm on Sunday evening.
“Unfortunately we've lost all our transformers,” said operational and maintenance manager, Klaas Gouws.
“And we need to test the transformers before we can switch anything back. This will take long.
“We really apologise for the discomfort.”
