Eskom has introduced nationwide load shedding due to sudden loss of capacity at various power stations and is implementing it directly at the point of intake.

According to the City of Ekurhuleni spokesperson, Zweli Dlamini, the city released a temporary load shedding schedule for stages 1 to 8 over 31 days.

“Eskom is implementing load shedding on two-hour cycles, but the CoE’s schedule indicates three hours.”

“The additional time added is set aside for the CoE’s technical teams for switching. The electricity demand is higher during the winter months and this may result in overload trips once Eskom supply is restored.

“The city is in discussions with Eskom on the possible exclusion of load shedding during stages 1 and 2 for industrial customers or other key customers in the city where network configuration allows for it.”
