City Power intensifies crackdown on illegal connections and revenue collection

# City Power is ramping up efforts to remove illegal connections and boost revenue collection across Johannesburg this winter. The initiative aims to alleviate pressure on the system and recover billions in unpaid dues. Observations indicate high electricity consumption by those illegally connected or where meters have been tampered with, leading to significant evening peak load increases. To manage this, load reduction will be implemented in over 80 areas during peak hours, with power cuts of two-and-a-half-hours daily until network stability is achieved.
