Municipal Loadshedding schedules

Jul 12, 2023

It should be noted that the information in this section is composed of links to municipalities or metros that provide their own loadshedding schedules, as well as instances where Eskom develops loadshedding schedules for certain areas or municipalities.  Below is an example of an Eskom-supplied municipality.

You can find your municipality on the Eskom Loadshedding website if it is not listed here

Example:      Municipality = Naledi, Town = Wepener

You should note that all shades indicate times when power will not be available. There is a cumulative schedule, i.e. for stage 3, the times will be the same as for phases 1 and 2.

 

E.g. Of How to Read the Schedule (i.e. Example Date and Blocks Shed)
