Eskom Loadshedding Update: 15 March 2024

Friday, 15 March 2024: As previously communicated, Stage 3 loadshedding will be implemented at 16:00 today until 05:00 tomorrow morning. Thereafter, loadshedding will be suspended from 05:00 on Saturday until 16:00, followed by Stage 1 loadshedding until 05:00 on Sunday.

The loadshedding pattern implemented on Saturday will be repeated on Sunday. This is as a result of the anticipated lower weekend demand. Eskom will provide an update for the week ahead on Sunday afternoon and will communicate should the need arise.

16:00 – 18:30

Saturday 16/03/2024
00:00 – 02:30

Consumers are reminded to PLEASE use electricity sparingly after power returns. Please do not switch high-usage equipment on immediately after Load shedding.
Consumers are urged to turn off high-usage equipment and where possible to not switch on appliances such as stoves and kettles for at least 30 minutes after load shedding is scheduled to return. This will reduce the risk of overload tripping on the network.

Reporting power outages
Please do not phone the after-hours number or the Electrotechnical Department to report that you have no power immediately after load shedding is scheduled to be lifted. Please be aware of the rotational switching on i.e. areas are switched on one by one and not all at the same time to avoid overloading the system. Please wait at least 30 minutes before reporting no power. The Electrotechnical Directorate will be aware of a possible substation trip that needs to be sorted out.
