Six Tips for Mitigating Risks During Rolling Blackouts:

Eskom Install Surge Protection:

Eskom Power surges can damage electronic equipment during blackouts. Install Eskom surge protection devices at your electrical distribution board or power outlets to minimize potential damage.

Ensure Alarm System Functionality:

Confirm that your alarm system is operational, and its backup battery is fully charged. This ensures continued security during load shedding.

Carry a Torch or Headlamp:

Keep a flashlight in your car for nighttime arrivals during Eskom power outages. Many smartphones have built-in flashlight functions that can also be useful in unexpected blackouts.

Emergency Contacts:

Save emergency contact information on your phone and keep a paper copy accessible. Include contacts for services like fire departments, police, and medical assistance, as well as friends and family members. Don’t forget to include insurance details.

Charge Devices:

Keep your cellphone, laptop, and tablet fully charged before scheduled blackouts. Recharge them as soon as power is restored. Consider having an emergency phone charger (e.g., a power bank) on hand for longer outages.

Use Gas for Cooking and Lighting:

Obtain a small LP gas bottle and lamp for effective lighting across larger areas. This can also be used for cooking and boiling water. Keep hot water in a thermal flask for hot drinks. Consider preparing meals in advance if you know a blackout is scheduled.

Eskom Loadshedding Today

There will be a daily implementation of this pattern until further notice. A new update will be published if any significant changes are made.

As of now, 14 252MW of generating capacity has been damaged by breakdowns, while 4 118MW of generating capacity has been out of service for planned maintenance.

As of today, Duvha, Hendrina, Kendal, Kriel, Matimba and Medupi power stations have each reactivated a generating unit.

The Arnot and Tutuka power stations each had a generation unit out of service due to a breakdown during the same period.

Tutuka Power Station’s current capacity constraints are due to the delay in resuming two generating units. In order to restore service to the generating units, Eskom teams are working around the clock.

Members of the public are being encouraged to use electricity sparingly and efficiently, and we want to thank the people who do heed the call. During the period between 17:00 and 21:00, please turn off your geysers and pool pumps as this reduces demand, alleviates pressure on the power system, and contributes to fewer stages of load-shedding.
