“The current situation is the Fordsburg and Orlando substation the feeder boards tripped. Technicians have been dispatched to both these substations to try and restore. At this stage the estimated time of restoration (ETR), City Power is estimating in the next four hours, so we could say just past midnight because this is a huge problem we are facing with two substations.”
