ALERT: Prepare for more loadshedding

Eskom implements stage one loadshedding today, after weekend of loadshedding.

In a bid to replenish emergency reserves and due to a shortage of generating capacity Eskom will once again be implementing loadshedding.

This after a weekend of loadshedding.

However, today only stage one loadshedding will be implemented from 9am.

Eskom has not stated when this will continue until, and instead said in a statement that an update regarding the loadshedding prognosis for the remainder of the week would be provided at a later stage.

The power utility appeals to residents and businesses to use electricity sparingly during this period.

To assist us in reducing the stage of loadshedding, Eskom appeals to customers to continue to use electricity sparingly by:
• Set air-conditioners to an average temperature of 23ºC.
• Switch off geysers over peak periods.
• Use the cold water tap rather than using hot water every time.
• Set your swimming pool pump cycle to run twice a day, three hours at a time for optimal energy use.
• At the end of the day, turn off computers, copiers, printers and fax machines at the switch. Avoid stand-by or sleep mode.
