Power Outages

Power outages are commonplace in Grahamstown, and result from a range of causes. It may be a transformer failure – which may affect a small portion of the campus – or a total campus-wide power outage caused by one or another factor.

Makana Municipality has hopefully designated the University as one of its top priorities, in the event of a fault from their side, for the return of electrical power. The Emergency Manager should be kept informed in order to determine the University’s priorities.

Emergency Generators

There are 10 areas on campus with emergency generators that provide limited power. The location and purpose of these generators are indicated in the table below.
