POWER ALERT 1

Date: 30 November 2018

The risk of loadshedding has moved from Stage 1 to Stage 2 for today, but will only be implemented if absolutely necessary

Friday, 30 November 2018: There is a high probability of Stage 2 rotational loadshedding from 09:00 until 22:00 today as a result of loss of additional units overnight.

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 encourage residents and businesses to please use electricity sparingly to ease the demand of electricity. Please switch off geysers during the day as well as all non-essential lighting and electricity appliances to assist in reducing demand.

Customers are advised to keep checking their loadshedding 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 South Africans for your co-operation and understanding.

 

ENDS
