Eskom implements Stage 2 rotational loadshedding
Monday, 03 December 2018: As a result of a shortage of capacity due to a number of generating units still out of service due to breakdowns, Eskom is implementing Stage 2 rotational loadshedding from 09:00 and is likely to continue until 22:00. Customers are reminded to treat all electrical points as live during loadshedding.
 
Eskom would like to sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused.
 
Stage 2 calls for 2000MW 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. 
 
For Eskom customers, these schedules are available on the Eskom website (http://loadshedding.eskom.co.za).Eskom customers can also contact our customer contact centre at 0860 037 566.
