DA welcomes substantial improvements in Ekurhuleni’s Energy Department
27 May 2022
The Democratic Alliance (DA) in Springs welcomes the major improvements in the City of Ekurhuleni’s Energy department that saw the building of a new temporary substation and restoration of electricity to over 200 000 residents.
On 20 May 2022, the Munic substation, a major substation that provides electricity to Springs, burnt down leaving the entire town without power.
Had this power outage not been attended to so rapidly, it would have plunged businesses into a crisis as they rely on electricity to function. This would have threatened business confidence and would have led to job losses.
The prompt response by the metro is a huge improvement to the type of service the people of Ekurhuleni experienced under the previous ANC administration.
