Stage 2 Load Shedding Schedule

Following the suspension, Eskom will implement Stage 2 load shedding from 4 pm until 5 am on Tuesday. Stage 2 load shedding involves a significant reduction in electricity supply and is a measure to manage power demand and supply.

Temporary Respite

After the nighttime load shedding, Eskom plans to suspend load shedding again, this time from 5 am until 4 pm on Tuesday. This temporary respite during the day allows for more stable access to electricity for consumers.

Repetitive Pattern

Eskom outlines that this pattern of load shedding suspension during the day (from 5 am to 4 pm) and the implementation of Stage 2 load shedding during the night (from 4 pm to 5 am) will be repeated on a daily basis until further notice.

This schedule aims to strike a balance between ensuring power supply during critical daytime hours and managing electricity demand during the evening and early morning.

Communication of Changes

Eskom emphasizes its commitment to communicating any significant changes in the load shedding schedule to the public. This proactive communication is essential for consumers to plan and prepare for periods of reduced electricity supply.

In summary, Eskom’s announcement provides details about the suspension and resumption of load shedding, highlighting the specific times when load shedding will occur and when it will be temporarily suspended.

This schedule is designed to manage electricity demand effectively while considering the needs of consumers and will be repeated until further notice. Eskom also assures the public of timely communication in case of any important updates or changes.
