They said something similar yesterday,

Eskom says there is no planned load shedding for today, as it has enough generating capacity to meet the current demand.
, six minutes later... boom!

Oh,

“This is in addition to the fact that several generating units are constantly out of service due to planned and unplanned maintenance,” said the power utility in a statement on Tuesday morning.
Fixed.

Mense, I am in the 8-10 slot again this evening so bet your next years salary that load shedding is implemented later this arvie till 2200.

I just don't dodge these things, sorry.

I don't see the point of publishing these statements so early, when they end up changing their minds in the afternoon anyway...

Earlier the City Of Cape Town said : Stage 1 from XXam till 22h00.

Now it reads "STAGE 2 LOADSHEDDING SCHEDULED FROM 16:00 - 22:00"

So is there no loadshedding at this moment??

:confused:

useless pedantic hat.

AT 18:00 and BY 18:00 gives a whole different meaning to a sentence. So. You have it. Can I have some of your beers then?

I'd rather not. Thing is that if they are calling Stage 2 this early in the day, the odds on Stage 3 cannot be too far behind :(
