In January 2008 Eskom controversially introduced “load shedding”; planned rolling blackouts based on a rotating schedule in periods where short supply threatens the integrity of the grid.

If you are not already using it, get the load shedding app, EskomSePush which keeps users up to date when load shedding starts and it’s day to day schedules in your area.
