Latest Updated Tshwane Load Shedding Schedule



Latest Updated Tshwane Load Shedding Schedule

A load shedding schedule for Tshwane, or any other region, outlines planned power outages that are implemented by the local electricity provider or utility company, often in response to a shortage of electricity supply. Below, I’ll explain the key points related to a Tshwane load shedding schedule.

Latest Updated Tshwane Load Shedding Schedule

Alarm Batteries

  • Ensure your alarm system’s backup batteries are charged and functional.
  • Backup batteries typically power the alarm for around eight hours, but this can vary based on factors like the number of connected devices, battery age, and local power issues.
  • Power outages can shorten the lifespan of alarm batteries.

Electric Fence

  • Confirm that your electric fence operates during power outages, often with a backup battery.


  • When using a generator, never operate it indoors, including in garages or confined spaces, as it emits carbon monoxide, which can be lethal.

Arriving/Leaving Home

  • Stay vigilant when arriving or leaving home at night, as street lights and outdoor lighting may be inactive during power outages.
  • Keep a flashlight (torch) in your vehicle for emergencies.

At Home

  • Secure all automated gates and doors, ensuring that other gates and doors are locked.
  • Use caution with candles, gas, and other lighting devices, as these can pose a fire hazard.
  • Have home fire extinguishers available.
  • Install battery-powered lights strategically in your home.
  • Keep motorized gate keys accessible and maintain good-quality padlocks for backup.
  • Save your security provider’s number in your phone for emergencies.
  • Keep your cell phone fully charged.

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.
