Resumption of Stage 2 Load Shedding

Following the suspension period, Eskom will resume load shedding, specifically stage 2, from 16:00 on Monday until 05:00 on Tuesday. Stage 2 load shedding represents a more severe level of controlled electricity reduction, aimed at managing supply and demand.

Temporary Suspension and Load Shedding Pattern

After the nighttime load shedding, Eskom plans to suspend load shedding again, this time from 05:00 until 16:00 on Tuesday. This temporary suspension during the day aims to provide more stable access to electricity for consumers.

Eskom explains that this pattern of suspending load shedding during the day (from 05:00 to 16:00) and implementing stage 2 load shedding during the night (from 16:00 to 05:00) will be repeated daily until further notice.

This repetitive schedule is designed 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 communicate any significant changes in the load-shedding schedule to the public. Timely communication is crucial for consumers to plan and prepare for periods of reduced electricity supply.

Load-Shedding Schedule

The provided schedule outlines the specific times when Eskom load shedding will occur for various days, including periods of suspension and different stages of load shedding. This schedule helps residents and businesses plan for power outages and understand the timing of load shedding in their areas.
