South africa:Eskom set to implement electricity restrictions in Gauteng

Eskom in Gauteng, on Tuesday 12 May, said it has no choice but to implement electricity supply restrictions.  
It has identified areas with significantly high non-technical losses mainly in residential areas. The power utility also continues to record a substantially high trend of energy demand during peak periods in the mornings and evenings between 05:00 and 09:00, and again between 17:00 and 20:00 respectively. 
Eskom in Gauteng said it can no longer endure repeated failures and explosions as a result of overloading caused by illegal connections, meter bypasses and tampering with electricity infrastructure that is on an increase. 

Senior Manager of Maintenance and Operations in the Gauteng Operating Unit Motlhabane Ramashi said it is prudent that they take deliberate measures to significantly reduce the extremely high costs associated with repeated equipment failure resulting from overloading, which costs more as the power is indiscriminately used during peak periods. 

The implementation of this initiative will be effected on a rotational basis in order to curb rising costs and Eskom will continuously monitor the developments to determine any improvements. The power utility said it will keep conducting audits, remove illegal connections and act against meter tampering, as well as impose penalties for any transgression while driving this initiative that is part of the multi-pronged strategy.
