Bonita and I have been going steady as commenting buddies here: Load Shedding – Schedule 3 to 8 February 2015. Bonita is a little bit irked that some households do not experience load shedding even during scheduled times.
My buddies over at Municipal Communications have answered Bonita’s questions by saying; “Please note that:
- The schedule does not mean that every single household/property in a particular Group will definitely be switched off for the entire duration of the Loadshedding time-slot;
- Hospitals and major industrial areas are not affected by Loadshedding. In certain instances, there are households which are supplied from the same substation that provides power to a hospital or factory (such as at SANCA in Chatty) – these households are, fortunately and consequently, not affected by Loadshedding; and
- You will not experience Loadshedding outside of the schedule as it is applicable to a specific stage. Should there be a power outage in your area outside of the schedule’s time-slot, this is due to a cable fault and not Loadshedding. In such instances, we endeavour to keep you informed.
We thank you for your patience and understanding as we collectively deal with a national energy crisis.”
