Tips for Staying Safe During Power Outages

When experiencing power outages, it’s crucial to ensure your safety and the security of your property. Here are some helpful tips to follow:

Alarm Batteries

Make sure all alarm system batteries are charged and functioning correctly. Backup batteries typically provide around eight hours of power, but this can vary based on factors like the number of connected devices, battery age, and power interruptions.

Electric Fence

Check that your electric fence continues to operate during power outages. It should have its own backup battery to maintain security.


If you’re using a generator, never operate it indoors, including garages or enclosed spaces, as it emits carbon monoxide, which can be life-threatening.

Arriving/Leaving Home

Be extra cautious when arriving or leaving your home in the evenings, as street lights and outdoor lighting may not function during power outages. Carry a flashlight in your car for added safety.

At Home

  • Secure all automated gates and doors, ensuring that other gates and doors are locked.
  • Be cautious with candles, gas, and other lighting sources, as they can pose fire hazards. Keep a home fire extinguisher on hand.
  • Install battery-operated lights in strategic areas of your home.
  • Keep keys to motorized gates accessible and have reliable padlocks as backup.
  • Program your security provider’s number in your cellphone for emergencies.
  • Maintain a fully charged cellphone for communication during outages.

By following these safety guidelines, you can better prepare for and navigate power outages effectively.

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.
