    City Power says it cannot say when it will be able to reopen the Allandale substation and restore supply to residents in the Midrand area.

    This comes after the substation was shut down on Thursday after a fire broke out resulting in both planned and unplanned outages.

    Eskom technicians and engineers were able to return electricity for some time but an oil leak forced them to close down once again.

    City Power spokesperson said, “This will continue until we are clear Eskom declares that it is safe, we will have no power coming through our systems.”
