Well example :

We have 09:00 to 12:00 on Wednesdays only, then absolutely nothing on Thursday.

We are on a 3 hour slot however. Check Buffalo City.
It depends how you define 'day' during a 24 hour period. We had load shedding at 2am this morning, and another scheduled for 6pm this evening. The next day the schedule rotates, and the slot is 10am (only). On Stage 2 you should get shed every 16 hours.

Well, we don't say there are 365 nights in a year.

Most people are awake more than 12 hours a day, and sleep less than 12 hours a day. Those periods don't coincide exactly with light and darkness, at least not in the last million years since the discovery of fire...

Ah, one of the few places with 3 hour slots. Almost everyone else is on 2 hour slots...

We still call it a day though.

24 hours = a day.

Off topic, but you are venturing into deep waters: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Day

Eskom why not at 8pm? We are scheduled for loadshedding between 8pm & 10pm
I suppose 1 hour off is better than 2 hours.

EskomSePush says we're supposed to be off at 16:00 but we never went off. Load shedding Notifier says 18:00 only? Who knows who to trust

Our power in Kenilworth didn't go off as scheduled at 6pm. The only explanation I can think of is that the CoCT are able to use Steenbras pumped storage until 9pm.
