Groblersdal Zone tackles illegal connections


The Groblersdal team recently embarked on a joint operation with the South African Police Service to eradicate illegal connections at Ga-Riba outside Burgersfort. The operation came after the village was identified as a hot spot for illegal connections in the Burgersfort sector. During the operation houses were disconnected, prepaid meter boxes were confiscated, some low-hanging cables were removed and other ones excavated.

Electricity theft takes place in many forms, but the most common ones are the following:

  • Illegal connections of conductors
  • Ghost vending or the selling of illegal electricity vouchers
  • Meter tampering and bypassing

The disadvantages of illegal connections include:

  • Loss of life
  • Energy and revenue losses for Eskom
  • Overloading on Eskom’s networks, which can result in more frequent blackouts.
