So my question is a simple one.
Why the **** has Meyerton had three consecutive nights of Stage 3 Load Shedding - where the power is out from 18:00 to around 22:00?
I drove back from Pretoria late last night and I couldn't even see anywhere else getting shed.

In Brackendows, Alberton - we hardly see any load shedding. If we have had the power off for more than 12 hrs in last three months, thats a lot.

Same here. If I have had a total of 3 hours since load shedding started it is a lot.
Funny thing is one of my colleagues stays like 2 km from me and he has at least 3 times a week.

My times are from 0600-0830, and the times that it has been off it is like 20 or 30 minutes.

My next question would be... if Eskimo know's all about these rules and safety regulations why don't they just man up and face the *od damn facts and fix everything?!! :confused:

This here. If it was fair they would keep track of areas that were switched and only switch off areas that have accumulated debt. Also why the **** should we get load shedding on a Monday when our power was off for more than 12 hours on a Saturday due to technical fault?

Our area hardly get loadshedded and when it does, it happens for 1hr max. Eskom is our electricity supplier and we buy directly from them and not via municipality.

Dear Tander
Thank you for reporting that your electricity is not load-shed. We will send out a specialist load-shed team within the next few days to ensure you are not discriminated against, and henceforth your power will be load-shed more often until such time as you are as angry, cold, and as miserable as everyone else

My area never used to get load shed. Someone bragged about it on a radio station and now we constantly get load shedding.

Not sure if it's just coincidence...

While I’m happy for everyone who isn’t affected by load shedding it is unfair that everyone isn’t contributing equally to reduce to load on the network.
