Pretoria power restored on rotation
Pretoria - Technical teams have restored power on a rotation basis to most
affected Pretoria consumers, the City of Tshwane said on Thursday.
"The city's technical teams have rerouted the power supply on the 11kV
network and power to most of the consumers has been restored," spokesperson
Console Tleane said.
Electrical supply would be restored on a load rotation basis until cables
had been installed.
The outage was caused by a cable fault on the 132kV electrical network,
On Wednesday the power failure affected the central business area and
Pretoria West Industrial - the same areas that had been without electricity for
over four days last week.
Residents were requested to switch off non-essential appliances and to treat
all electrical equipment as live.
