Eskom Tshwane Load Shedding: When the power is out, it could take your alarm and other security features down with it. Here are some tips for keeping safe when the power is down:

Tshwane Load Shedding Schedule by Eskom

Alarm Batteries:

Make sure all alarm batteries are charged and working.
An alarm’s backup battery typically powers the system for about eight hours on average, depending on various factors.
Power outages can reduce the lifespan of alarm batteries.

Electric Fence:

Ensure that your electric fence continues to function during power outages; it should have a backup battery.


If you use a generator, never operate it indoors, including the garage or confined spaces, as it produces carbon monoxide, which can be fatal.
Arriving/Leaving Home:

Be vigilant when arriving or leaving home in the evenings, as street lights and outside lighting may not be functioning during power outages.
Keep a torch in your car.

At Home:

  • Secure all automated gates and doors, and lock all other gates and doors.
  • Exercise caution with candles, gas, and other lighting devices during power outages to reduce fire hazards.
  • Keep home fire extinguishers on hand.
  • Install battery-operated lights strategically in your home.
  • Keep keys to motorized gates accessible and have quality padlocks as backups.
  • Program your security provider’s number in your cell phone for emergencies.
  • Keep your cell phone fully charged.

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.
