No loadshedding on Monday, but risk remains high

Eskom says no loadshedding is expected on Monday, but the possibility of loadshedding remains high. 




Customers are requested to continue to use electricity sparingly and to assist Eskom to reduce demand:

  • Keep your morning shower short to lessen the load during morning peak;
  • Take food out of the freezer for dinner and put it in the fridge to thaw. It’ll save you
    using the microwave to defrost it later;
  • Set air conditioners’ average temperature at 23°;
  • Switch off geysers over peak periods;
  • Unplug that cell phone charger before you leave the house. It uses electricity
    even if your phone is not plugged in;
  • Use the cold water tap rather than using the geyser every time;
  • Set your swimming pool pump cycle to run twice a day, 3 hours at a time; and
  • At the end of the day, turn off computers, copiers, printers and fax machines at
    the switch.

“We appeal to customers to revisit their loadshedding schedules on the Eskom website, (https://loadshedding.eskom.co.za) or local municipal websites, depending on their electricity supplier, to review amendments,” Eskom said.
