KOUGA Municipality’s electrification programme in 2018 focused on Humansdorp and Jeffreys Bay.

“Some 268 households at Humansdorp had power at their fingertips for the first time when the municipality electrified 114 erven at the informal settlement Donkerhoek and 154 houses at the Kruisfontein 391 development,” Kouga Executive Mayor Horatio Hendricks said in his State of the Municipality Address.

Temporary electrical connections were also installed for 168 households at the Ocean View temporary relocation area, which was established last year to house prospective beneficiaries of the Ocean View 1 500 pro-ject.”

He said the electrification of the remaining 237 houses at the Kruisfontein 391 project was underway, with R10,2-million having been secured for this purpose.

“Good news for the broader Jeffreys Bay community, is that the municipality has finalised the servitude agreements required for the upgrade of the town’s main power line from the Melkhout station,” he said.

“The next phase of the project is scheduled for the new financial year.”
