Mogale City’s Energy Services regrettably wishes to inform residents and businesses that the mini substation supplying power to Noordheuwel Extension 4 was badly vandalised and some parts stolen in the early hours of this morning.

Our technical team has already reached out to several suppliers to source a replacement unit. Once the unit is purchased, the lengthy process of transportation, delivery, installation and testing will follow. It will therefore take several hours before power supply can be restored thus no estimated time of restoration can be provided at this point.

We continue to appeal to members of the community to help curb the vandalism and thievery of our infrastructure which costs the municipality a substantial amount of money to replace by reporting the culprits.

Energy Services advises affected residents to treat electrical wiring as live and to switch off all appliances to avoid injury and damage once supply is restored.
