21 hours per day Eskom load-shedding is here

Eskom has stated that it will implement stage 2 load-shedding throughout the coming week.

Following load-shedding this weekend, Eskom said it will continue stage 2 load-shedding from 09:00 tomorrow morning until 06:00 on Tuesday – and will then continue with more load-shedding until Thursday at 06:00.

“We will endeavour to provide a break in load-shedding from 06:00 to 09:00 each day in the week, when possible,” said Eskom.

This is in a bid to minimise the impact on traffic, as load-shedding will see robots go out at traffic intersections.

Unplanned outages or breakdowns were 11,831MW as of 17:00 this afternoon, said Eskom.

Instructions for using electricity

Eskom went on to provide a list of instructions for South Africans to follow when using electricity.

This included:

  • Using the cold water tap, so as to not use geysers.
  • Set aircons to above 23 degrees.
  • Switch your PC off at the wall switch to avoid standby or sleep modes.
