How to contact Eskom in the Western Cape
Eskom would like to share its complaint handling process for customers whose query/fault is not attended to or has not been resolved to their satisfaction.
Eskom customers are encouraged to direct their query/fault directly to the ESKOM’S Contact Centre. The report must include the account number of the affected property or properties.
The following channels are available.
• Eskom Contact Centre: 08600 37566 or 08600ESKOM (available 24hrs, seven days a week)
• SMS line: 35328
• E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
• MyEskom Customer App, downloadable from “APP STORE”
When many affected customers report the problem, it will naturally receive a higher priority. (Eskom relies on the report/reference of just one complainant, it may seem that the fault is a single customer issue).
Eskom clients are therefore encouraged to use the system to report faults and to ask for a reference number.
Always include a valid account number, erf/stand number or meter number for effective service delivery.
To follow up on issues when a response is not forthcoming, you may escalate your complaint to Customer Relations Management during weekdays.
If your query/fault has not been attended to within 48 hours, please direct your complaint to the responsible customer ralations manager during weekdays - always provide your reference number.
