Eskom implements Stage 3 rotational

Wednesday,: Due to a shortage of capacity, Eskom will implement Stage 3 rotational loadshedding from 08h00 today and is likely to continue until 23h00.

Customers are reminded to treat all electrical points as live during loadshedding.

Stage 3 calls for 3000MW to be rotationally loadshed nationally at a given period. Loadshedding is conducted rotationally as a measure of last resort to protect the power system from a total collapse or blackout.

We continue to appeal to residents and businesses to use electricity sparingly during this period. Please switch off geysers as well as all non-essential lighting and electricity appliances to assist in reducing demand.
