We weren't cut off last night as scheduled so 11:00 today's the litmus test for our area.

It's interesting to see the voltage changes just before LS kicks in. Spec supply here is 240V, but about two minutes before LS that drops to 236-237V, and then rises to 239-240V and then cut.

According to my UPS software, I am currently receiving 225V

Eskom not going to be happy
Eskom usually have a decent buffer I think.

For us the Municipality got their schedules totally wrong.... They have times like block 1 8am to 10:30am and then block 2 11am to 13:30 so between the times there is 30min the that whole area got power. Usually they should overlap to but I guess Eskom don't care about that 30min or it is simply not significant enough.

I won't be surprised if Eskom got like 500MW buffer or so.
