Eskom Announces Stage 2 Load Shedding

With load shedding already a reality in several parts of the country, Eskom has now implemented stage 2 load shedding in Johannesburg - just in time for Christmas!


This year, many people around the country will be having Christmas by candlelight, with the announcement that Eskom is implementing stage 2 load shedding with immediate effect.

Due to continued pressure on the national power grid, Eskom has put into effect stage 2 load shedding in Johannesburg, and this is expected to remain in force until March 2019. According to an Eskom spokesperson "Due to continued pressure on the national grid, Eskom will implement stage 2 load shedding from 4pm to 10pm." In most instances, load shedding will be implemented for up to 4 hours per area, on a rotating basis.





Eskom clients can view the load shedding schedules on the Eskom website, while those receiving power from a local authority can get in touch with City Power or their local authority.
