There is a high risk of Stage 1 rotational loadshedding from 16:00 to 23:00 today

There is a high risk of rotational loadsheding today from 16:00 to 23:00, but will only be implemented if absolutely necessary. This is as a result of a shortage of capacity due to the loss of generating units at our power stations.

We continue to encourage 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.

Customers are advised to keep checking their load shedding schedules on the Eskom or municipal website, and plan on the assumption that load shedding will take place.

Eskom will provide regular updates about the state of the power system through various media platforms.

Thank you to all South Africans and customers for your co-operation and understanding.
