Dust off your generators and fill up your LPG tanks, there’s a power outage planned for many parts of Johannesburg this evening.

The planned outage will commence at 10PM this evening, 10th July, and will end at 6AM tomorrow morning 11th July.

“The power interruption is necessary to do essential maintenance work on our network which is part of our program of constantly striving to provide better service,” City Power said in a notice to customers.

City Power has said that power may be restored at any time so customers should treat all supply points as live at all times during the outage. It might also be a good idea to unplug any electronics during the outage to avoid any surges that might occur when the power comes back on.

You can see which areas will be affected by the outage in the image below.
