Residents and businesses are encouraged to use electricity sparingly to ease the demand of electricity. Switch off geysers as well as all non-essential lighting and electricity appliances to assist in reducing demand.
Customers are advised to keep checking their load shedding schedules on the Eskom or municipal website, and plan on the assumption that load shedding will take place.
Eskom will provide regular updates on the status of the power system through all the media platforms.
Thank you to all South Africans all customers for your co-operation and understanding.
