Villiers new load-shedding schedule

"load shedding schedule which will take effect as of 06 June 2023 at midnight"

Dear Mafube Residents

As you are all aware when load shedding was applied by Eskom in Villiers, the town as a whole was switched off. As a result of this wholesale load shedding it not only negatively affected the entire town BUT it also created the opportunity for thieves to target the network for looting which meant electricity outages lasted for even longer.

After numerous engagements with Eskom, RFS is very pleased to announce that ESKOM is working with RFS to optimise load shedding in Villiers to benefit the community.

This would simply mean that instead of Eskom switching off the main switch RFS divided the town into 3 different zones and will assume responsibility for load shedding as from 7 June. There will still be Load Shedding and it will still be the same as if Eskom implements BUT the whole town will not be in the dark at the same time and the electricity to critical infrastructure such as water and sanitation will remain on.

See the map depicting the zones into which Villiers has been divided for the rotational load shedding along with the load shedding schedule which will take effect as of 06 June 2023 at midnight. The map and schedule is listed below.

RFS has also sent a copy of the area map and schedule to all electricity users via email and social media. We also ask that community groups and residents share this information with one another so that all are aware.

We believe that like us, you are hopeful that the new changes will in time bring forth very positive results to in a small manner, start alleviating some of the hardship that is caused by the energy crisis.

Yours Truly

Gugu Mokoena
