Eskom implements Stage 2 rotational Load Shedding

Friday, 15 March 2019: Due to a shortage of capacity, Eskom will implement Stage 2 rotational load shedding from 08h00 today, and is likely to continue until 23h00.

Customers are reminded to treat all

electrical points as live during loadshedding.

Stage 2 calls for 2000MW to be rotationally loadshed nationally at a given period. Load shedding 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 ( Eskom customers can also contact our customer contact centre at 0860 037 566.
