Planned Bulk Electricity Supply
Existing 88kV Line
88kV Line Extension
Eskom currently supplies electricity to the area. With development City Power will most likely become the future electricity provider.
No bulk electrical infrastructure is currently available for development. However, capacity of the existing 88kV overhead line is currently being strengthened and Eskom is also in the process of establishing a new substation in the vicinity of site A, which would be able to supply the northern portion (up to 45MVA) of Linbro Park.
The development envisioned for Linbro will require a total estimated bulk supply of 90MVA.
A new 88kV line extension located in an existing electrical servitude on the Landfill will be required to supply a new southern substation in the vicinity of site B with a further 45MVA.
The electrical reticulation system should not pose a constraint to future development, as easy extension is possible from the substations to new switching stations in Linbro, but Eskom`s generating capacity may limit the rate of future development.
