However, residents should note that these might be subject to change due to weather or unpredictable circumstances.

The city said in an event of load shedding, particularly from stage 3 maintenance work will be cancelled.

They urge residents to switch off appliances at the wall socket ahead of maintenance to reduce the risk of damage caused by power surges.

“The supply could be restored at any time, therefore residents should remember to treat all electrical installations as live for the full duration of the interruption,” the statement read.
