More houses powered up at Humansdorp

Kouga Infrastructure and Engineering Portfolio Councillor Freddy Campher and Director Victor Felton prepare to switch on the electricity to a further 53 houses at the Kruisfontein 391 RDP housing development.

Kouga Infrastructure and Engineering Portfolio Councillor Freddy Campher and Director Victor Felton prepare to switch on the electricity to a further 53 houses at the Kruisfontein 391 RDP housing development.

A further 53 households at Humansdorp received electricity for the first time this week, with almost 200 more to follow over the next two months.

Kouga Infrastructure and Engineering Portfolio Councillor Freddy Campher switched on the electricity to 53 houses at the Kruisfontein 391 RDP housing development on Monday.

The switch-on was part of a R10-million project to install electricity to the remaining 237 houses at the development. 

The power to the first 154 houses was switched on in July last year.

"Electricity has a  life-changing effect on the general livelihoods of people. That is why the municipality has left no stone unturned to ensure that these residents do not have to go through another winter without electricity," Campher said. 

"We are happy that we could keep our word and that the electricity to a further 53 houses has been switched on. More than that, we are pleased to see how happy this has made the beneficiaries."

He advised residents that certain upgrades and new installations still had to be done before the remaining houses could be connected to the grid. 

"As a result, there will be a series of shutdowns over the next few weeks. 

"We ask that residents who were just switched on don't get a fright when this happens. It will only be for a few hours on the relevant days to allow the contractor and municipal teams to complete the project."

The relevant dates are 10 May for the removal and re-installation of an auto recloser and switch, 15 May for the installation of a new MV cable and pole, 26 May for the installation of two new auto reclosers, 29 May for the tie-in to the existing line so that three new transformers can be energised, and 2 June for the installation of three new switches.

A further interruption will follow later in June for the installation of a new feeder panel at the substation.
