Eskom will continue to implement Stage 2 load shedding until Sunday, 17 March 2019, as a result of a shortage of generation capacity due to plant breakdowns and the need to manage our diesel and water resources. The management of the diesel and water resources is essential to ensure that the impact of the potential stage of load-shedding in the week ahead can be reduced.
 
The system outlook for next week further indicates a high risk and that up to Stage 2 load-shedding may be implemented until the middle of next week.   

Eskom is currently implementing Stage 2 rotational load-shedding from 08h00 today, and it is likely to continue until 23h00.
 
Eskom regrets the inconvenience that this will cause. Regular updates on the status of the power system will be provided through all the media platforms and will include the relevant times that load-shedding will be implemented on the day.
 
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.
 
Eskom customers can check their load-shedding schedules on the Eskom website (loadshedding.eskom.co.za) or through the customer contact centre on 0860037566.
