There is a high risk of Stage 1 rotational loadshedding today, but will only be implemented if absolutely necessary
Tuesday, 05 March 2019: There is a high risk of Stage 1 rotational loadshedding this afternoon until 22:00 today, 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.
 
Eskom will provide regular updates about the state of the power system through various media platforms.
 
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.
 
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.
 
Eskom will provide regular updates on the status of the power system through all the media platforms.
 
Thank you to all customers for your co-operation and understanding.
