How to read/understand the schedules.

Example:      Municipality = Naledi, Town = Wepener

​ ​
E.g. of how to read the schedule (i.e. example date and blocks shed)
 
If load shedding is declared for the 1st of month in this example then someone in  Blouberg, Alldays Dorp would look at the corresponding date (as depicted in the picture below): 

 
- if Eskom declared Stage 1, this would mean he/she would be shed from 01:00 - 03:30
- if Eskom declared Stage 2, this would mean he/she would be shed from 01:00 - 03:30
- if Eskom declared Stage 3, this would mean he/she would be shed from 01:00 - 03:30 AND 17:00 - 19:30
- if Eskom declared Stage 4, this would mean he/she would be shed from 01:00 - 03:30 AND 09:00 - 11:30 AND 17:00 - 19:30
- if Eskom declared Stage 5, this would mean he/she would be shed from 01:00 - 05:30 AND 09:00 - 11:30 AND 17:00 - 19:30
- if Eskom declared Stage 6, this would mean he/she would be shed from 01:00 - 05:30 AND 09:00 - 11:30 AND 17:00 - 19:30
- if Eskom declared Stage 7, this would mean he/she would be shed from 01:00 - 05:30 AND 09:00 - 11:30 AND 17:00 - 21:30
- if Eskom declared Stage 8, this would mean he/she would be shed from 01:00 - 05:30 AND 09:00 - 13:30 AND 17:00 - 21:30






 

 

Notes:

  1. ​The load shedding timetable starts when there is a formal announcement from Eskom
  2. To check what the position is of load shedding at any time, go to http://www.loadshedding.eskom.co.za
  3. This is a monthly time table for load shedding.
  4. Load shedding will begin with the declaration from Eskom. If you are scheduled from 16:00 to 18:30, but loadshedding is declared at 17h00, you will only be load shed from 17h00 to 18h30.
  5. If you are scheduled on a lower stage and a higher stage is declared, then your current time slot will be included in the higher stage
