Alarm Batteries

It’s essential to maintain alarm system batteries. These backup batteries typically provide power for about eight hours, but their duration can vary based on various factors, including the number of connected devices, battery age, and the frequency of power failures or surges. Frequent outages can significantly impact battery life.

Electric Fence

For those with electric fences, make sure they continue to function during power outages by ensuring that they have backup batteries.


When using generators, never operate them indoors, including in your home, garage, or confined spaces. Generators produce carbon monoxide, which can be fatal if not used in well-ventilated areas.

Arriving and Leaving Home

Be extra cautious when arriving or leaving your home in the evenings during load shedding, as street lights and outdoor lighting may not be operational. It’s advisable to keep a flashlight in your car for added safety.

At Home

Take the following precautions within your home during load shedding:

  • Secure all automated gates and doors.
  • Lock all other gates and doors.
  • Use caution when using candles, gas, or other lighting sources, as they can pose a fire hazard. Keep a home fire extinguisher on hand.
  • Install battery-operated lights strategically within your home.
  • Keep motorized gate keys accessible and have reliable padlocks for backup.
  • Program your security provider’s contact number in your cell phone for emergencies.
  • Ensure your cell phone is 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.
