Lynne Brown said : "Eskom informs me that the areas that have smart metres in Soweto are unlikely to have overloading. So there is a need to accelerate smart metre deployment and for the communities to support this programme as it improves the quality of their supply and ensures safety. Eskom installs fuses or circuit breakers that switch off when the load gets to dangerous levels, thus preventing the transformer from exploding. Sometimes residents bypass these safety features and the transformer does explode. Not only is this dangerous, but these transformers may take hours or days to repair. I remain concerned about the safety of the communities which may be at risk due to the escalating number of illegal connections, meter bypassing or tampering (electricity theft) and vandalism to electricity infrastructure. Illegal connections and electricity theft overstretch our resources slowing down Eskom and the municipalities' service delivery to legal power users. This also includes overloading call centres where agents handle over a thousand calls every 30 minutes. It is unacceptable that people are still continuing with illegal connections, while Government has a free basic electricity policy to protect the indigent from high electricity prices. These illegal connections are putting residents and especially children at risk of being electrocuted. Furthermore the aging infrastructure is stretched to capacity with these illegal connections. I appeal to citizens to support Eskom's operation Khanyisa and report illegal connections to the police," External link

Lynne Brown said : "Eskom informs me that the areas that have smart metres in Soweto are unlikely to have overloading. So there is a need to accelerate smart metre deployment and for the communities to support this programme as it improves the quality of their supply and ensures safety. Eskom installs fuses or circuit breakers that switch off when the load gets to dangerous levels, thus preventing the transformer from exploding. Sometimes residents bypass these safety features and the transformer does explode. Not only is this dangerous, but these transformers may take hours or days to repair. I remain concerned about the safety of the communities which may be at risk due to the escalating number of illegal connections, meter bypassing or tampering (electricity theft) and vandalism to electricity infrastructure. Illegal connections and electricity theft overstretch our resources slowing down Eskom and the municipalities' service delivery to legal power users. This also includes overloading call centres where agents handle over a thousand calls every 30 minutes. It is unacceptable that people are still continuing with illegal connections, while Government has a free basic electricity policy to protect the indigent from high electricity prices. These illegal connections are putting residents and especially children at risk of being electrocuted. Furthermore the aging infrastructure is stretched to capacity with these illegal connections.
