Due to continued pressure on the national grid, Eskom will implement Stage 4 loadshedding from 13h00 today and is likely to continue until 22h00.
 
Since this morning we have unexpectedly lost six additional generating units which have put additional strain on the system.
 
Customers are reminded to treat all electrical points as live during loadshedding.
 
Stage 1 requires 1000MW, Stage 2 requires 2000MW, Stage 3 requires 3000MW and Stage 4 calls for 4000MW to be rotationally loadshed nationally at a given period. Loadshedding is conducted rotationally as a measure of last resort to protect the power system.
 
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 (http://loadshedding.eskom.co.za).Eskom customers can also contact our customer contact centre at 0860 037 566.
