Great we just had two hours out at 2, now another two. Wish the morons in charge would sincerely die of any, and/or every disease.

Bit of a technical question here - does anyone perhaps know how many megawatts are shed during stage 1, 2 and 3?

And we have had none today, this morning was stage 1 after our allotted slot, and if on stage 3 we would have just finished it, but since stage 2...

Tshwane has a fixed schedule, doesn't change per week or month day like some other areas. I bit unfair I think.

Is this correct?

Yes.

Before end of last year it was stage 1 = 1000MW , stage 2 = 2000MW and stage 3 = 3000MW but they then changed it.

So to confirm, "During stage one blackouts 1000MW of the national load is cut, 2000MW during stage two, and 4000MW in stage three."
