Eskom implements Stage 1 rotational loadshedding
Due to a shortage of capacity, Eskom will implement Stage 1 rotational loadshedding from 11h00 today and is likely to continue until 23h00.
Customers are reminded to treat all electrical points as live during loadshedding.
Stage 1 calls for 1000MW 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.
