PNG Power says that users in Laloki, Bomana, Nine Mile, Eight Mile, Skyview, Malolo, Kenedy Estates, Erima and parts of Gordons will experience load-shedding because work needs to be done.
"Load-shedding is being carried out due to a fault on one of the transformer underground cables at Bomana Sub Station. The problem is serious and will take five days to dig and replace the burnt cable, therefore, load-shedding will be carried out during the duration of the work," PNG Power said.
It adds that for Skyview and 2G Estate, there is a suspected blown drop out fuse that will be attended to.
"PNG Power sincerely apologises for the inconvenience caused and will do its very best to restore electricity supply as soon as possible."
