Eskom starts Load Shedding

As a result Eskom has implemented stage 1 load shedding today as of 13h00, until 20h00 this evening. Load shedding will recommence again tomorrow and Sunday at 09h00 in order to build up reserves for the week ahead. Eskom will update the public on the status on an ongoing basis.

Eskom calls on consumers to urgently switch off geysers, air conditioners, pool pumps and all non-essential appliances throughout the day to limit the impact of rotational load shedding.
