New mini-sub for Roodepoort
A newly installed mini-substation has been officially switched on in Roodepoort, Johannesburg.
Acting CEO of City Power, Tshifularo Mashaba said they were there to serve their customers and ensure that there is a power supply.
“We believe we are going to be unveiling a milestone. With this infrastructure, we get to guarantee the quality of supply for our customers. In the past, we have found ourselves along with our customers having interrupted services. Today we are marking an important milestone.”
MMC of EISD, Michael Sun outlined plans for future development. “We hope that with this initiative power outages caused by illegal connections will now stop. This is but step number one of this wonderful initiative where we bring you the basic services you deserve. The next substation that will go up will serve the bigger community. Within the distance of two kilometres, we will replace one plus another two mini-substations. We will remove and upgrade, and ensure that together with our community members we protect it.”
