With load shedding, power cuts, sub-station failures and other forms of power outages, comes power surges. These surges occur when the power is switched back on, at the end of a load shedding cycle or when the power is restored after a fix.
These powers surges can blow your appliances & electronics. For this reason, City Power compensates residents that are affected by these surges through their Public Liability insurance. See attached.
