I just can't recall what the different stages of load shedding entail...
Stage 1 allows for up to 1000 MW of the national load to be shed.
Stage 2 allows for up to 2000 MW of the national load to be shed.
Stage 3 allows for up to 4000 MW of the national load to be shed.

“It important to note that we have not declared an emergency or announced load shedding, but we are seeing a lot of demand on the system and expect it to get worse this afternoon when people get home.”

That was when people used their stoves and other appliances.

“On a technical side, the engineers are doing all things possible to bring all generators back on the grid,” Phasiwe said.

No power in Rivonia.

And Eskom is:

"Load shedding status

We are currently NOT LOAD SHEDDING"

For the second time this week...

Log a fault. Don't complain here.
Done already. They just hung up when you try to log a fault as they were doing on Sunday which ended up being a cable theft leading to 21h without power and 0 explanation from Eskom until after it got repaired...

It ended up being the ward councillor who had to force Eskom to explain...
