Safety a priority for Electro-technical Services

Safety a priority for Electro-technical Services

The George Electro-technical department is embarking on a process to install tariff meters for those occupants of the Rosedale TRA who currently do not have prepayment profiles. Although electricity  was installed in the area some 4 years, the assigned owners of 143 houses in the area never occupied their structures. Other families ended up staying there, either by informal renting or other means. They could not get legal electricity, as they were not the legal occupiers of the temporary erven.  As the only missing link in the electricity supply was the un-installed tariff meter, many of the occupants connected themselves illegally.

 

At a recent Council meeting, the occupants of the 143 structures have been acknowledged as the legal occupants of the erven and as a result, tariff metres can now be installed. There are 143 houses in the TRA that need to be made safe as illegal connections remain the top cause of fires in the settlement. Portfolio Councillor for Electrotechnical Services, Edmund Bussack and Senior Supervisor Investigations Electrotechnical Services, Eddie Nqumse paid a visit to Janet Windwaai last week to inform her that she will be one of the first houses to be dealt with.
