Tips for Safety During Power Outages

During power outages caused by load shedding, it’s essential to ensure your safety and the security of your property. Here are some valuable tips:

Alarm Batteries

  • Ensure all alarm system batteries are charged and in working condition.
  • Note that an alarm’s backup battery typically provides power for about eight hours, depending on various factors.

Electric Fence

  • Confirm that your electric fence continues to operate during power outages.
  • Electric fences should have backup batteries to maintain security.

Generators

  • If you use a generator during power outages, never operate it indoors, including in garages or enclosed spaces, as it produces carbon monoxide, which can be lethal.

Arriving/Leaving Home

  • Exercise extra caution when arriving or leaving your home in the evenings, as street lights and outdoor lighting may not function during power outages.
  • Keep a flashlight or torch in your vehicle for added safety.

At Home

  • Ensure all automated gates and doors are securely closed and locked.
  • With increased use of candles, gas, and other lighting sources, be aware of the potential fire hazard.
  • Have home fire extinguishers readily available.
  • Install battery-operated lights strategically in your home.
  • Keep keys to motorized gates accessible and use high-quality padlocks as a backup.
  • Store your security provider’s contact number in your cell phone for emergencies.
  • Maintain a fully charged cell phone for communication during outages.

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.
