Eskom Rolls Out Incline Block Tariffs

12 June 2013Eskom

Incline Block Tariffs divide the electricity price into several steps or blocks. The first block of electricity is at the lowest price. As the customer purchases more electricity during the month, the electricity bought will eventually fall in block two which is a bit more expensive. This process repeats automatically as the customer purchases further electricity to move into block 2. At the end of the month, the history is reset and the customer will again start the next month from block 1.

Several areas were without electricity after current transformers on the red phase exploded yesterday at Hadison Park Substationabout 17:00 at our Hadison Park Sub Station which has two transformers. Both the transformers were shut down to make  an assessment and it was discovered only transformer No. 2 was affected. The Supply of electricity was therefore interrupted to Handison Park, Hillcrest, Catersglen, Verwoered Park, El Toro Park, Royldene, portions of New Park,  and other areas on the south western part of the city. Our Newton Reservoir  was also affected and this led to a decrease in the water supply pressure while the high lying areas had no running water. Electrical supply was restored to transformer no 1, while some areas were supplied from the Southridge Sub Station. The replacement of the current transformers is expected to take about two days. We humbly appeal to all residents who were affected to use electricity sparingly as the capacity of the Hadison Sub Station is usually at 40 MVA and now is being supplied from a 20MVA transformer. All non essential electricity appliances should be switched off until further notice. We apologise for the inconvenience
