Further plant breakdowns increase the likelihood of rotational loadshedding on Sunday
Saturday, 08 December 2018: As announced this morning, Stage 1 rotational loadshedding is currently underway and this is likely to continue until 22:00.
 
An increase in breakdowns at our power stations today has further impacted the availability of sufficient generation capacity. As a result, we have been unable to build up the necessary reserves for the week ahead. We therefore regret to announce that up to Stage 2 loadshedding remains a high probability for tomorrow (Sunday, 09 December). As previously announced, there also remains a high probability of Stage 2 loadshedding for Monday, 10 December.
 
We apologies for the late notification and the inconvenience this may cause.
 
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 demanddemand
 
For Eskom customers, loadshedding 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.
