Lower phases load shedding in force this weekend


Phase 3 load shedding will be implemented from Friday at 16:00 to Saturday at 05:00, after which Phase 1 load shedding will be in effect until 16:00. Phase 2 load shedding will then be introduced at 4pm until 5am on Sunday.

Load shedding will be suspended from 05:00 to 16:00 on Sunday, after which Phase 1 load shedding will resume from 16:00 to 05:00 on Monday.

According to Eskom, the lower phases of load shedding are due to the return of some generation units in the past 48 hours, as well as a lower power demand over the weekend.

“On Sunday, Eskom will announce the outlook for the week ahead and notify the public if any significant changes occur.”
