The electricity grid will be under significant strain today and tomorrow from 17:30 to 18:30pm.
While the load increases significantly during the evening peak from 17:00pm to 21:00pm, the system demand is at the greatest risk during the period from 17:30 to 18:30pm. Please switch off all office equipment before leaving the office, and switch off geysers for this hour in particular. Retailers can assist by switching off all non-essential loads during this hour.
Help us beat the peak by switching off electrical space heaters, geyers, pool pumps and non-essential lights and appliances. You can also help by postponing your cooking time to after 18:30pm as this will aid to avert potential load reduction.
This serves as a pre-warning that load reduction might be a possibility. As a precautionary measure, Eskom customers can find the load shedding schedules on the Eskom website. Municipal customers should please consult their relevant municipality.
