A Hub for Irrigation and Agriculture

At the heart of Groblersdal is the Loskop Dam irrigation scheme, which has earned the town the distinction of being the second-largest irrigation settlement in South Africa. This man-made floodplain is the lifeblood of crops such as cotton, citrus, tobacco, wheat, and maize.

Wildlife and Tourism

Groblersdal is renowned for its game farms, which beckon tourists with the promise of adventure. The Loskop Dam, where angling enthusiasts can find Bream and Carp, provides another attraction. For those who prefer a more serene experience, bird watching and hiking are on offer.

Accommodation and Dining

Visitors to Groblersdal can choose from a range of accommodation options, including cozy Bed and Breakfasts and convenient self-catering units. The town also boasts restaurants that serve delectable South African cuisine.

Understanding Load Shedding

Load shedding is the chosen method for addressing South Africa’s electricity shortfall by distributing available power among users. Groblersdal, like many places in the country, grapples with the consequences of load shedding. The local community seeks to minimize this impact through energy conservation.

Tips for Energy Conservation

Groblersdal residents are encouraged to do their part in alleviating the strain of load shedding:

  • Switch off unnecessary equipment and lights.
  • Transition to energy-efficient lighting.
  • Consider installing a solar geyser.
  • If you have a pool, minimize its operating time.

Commercial establishments 

  • Light usage is a significant energy expense. Turn off lights in unused areas and reduce lighting in others.
  • Efficient operation of air conditioning can reduce energy consumption.
  • Be mindful of the energy crisis to prevent contributing to load shedding.

Groblersdal recognizes the importance of collective action in addressing energy challenges and working towards a more sustainable future.

Monday, 10 July 2023: Stage 4 loadshedding is being implemented until 5:00 a.m. on Tuesday due to increased demand. On Wednesday, Stage 4 loadshedding will be implemented from 14:00 until 05:00, followed by Stage 2 loadshedding from 05:00 to 14:00.

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.
