Eskom Limlanga Cluster (Limpopo Operating Unit) advice customers that the first petersburg witkop has tripped due to veldfires.
Limpopo Operating Unit said that there is also a risk on the second Petersburg witkop since it cannot carry the whole load and therefore customers should use electricity sparingly by unplugging and switching off appliances they don’t need.
Eskom substation include Soengloed which feeds wawiel,palm,Zandput,Seshego 66vk,Chloe Moletjie, Petersburg braaksoot and Petersburg keena Moloto will be affected.
It was reported that Polokwane Municipality substations which includes Alpha,Delta,Gamma,Lota,Sigma and Epssolom will also be affected.
