    Just received a notice letting us know that the power will be off for around 16 hours on Sunday - from 9:30 until 23:30
    It says the Carlswald area (Midrand) but just a heads up in case it is more wide spread.
    Luckily I have a generator :))))

    Power was off 3 times this month already. It is getting ridiculous!
    1st time was about 10 hours, 2nd time was around 4 hours, 3rd time was only an hour.
    This will be the 4th time in 5 weeks.

    Yes, same happened to us about 6 months ago when our power was also off for 3 days. Our generator saved us big time.

    Hi

    Is this maintenance related or load shedding - I have not heard an "official" notices on power cuts to reduce national load, not in PE at least. Good luck to you guys up there

    The notice says that it is a planned outage for maintenance purposes but who knows!

    They should be okay as they are on the other side of Midrand but let them at least be aware just in case.
