Load shedding moved to stage 2 until further notice

 ·27 Feb 2024

Power utility Eskom says that load shedding will be moved to all-day stage 2 until further notice.

This is an easing of outages from the previous rotation of stage 2 during the day and stage 3 in the evenings.

“Due to sustained adequate emergency reserves to manage the evening peak and electricity demand, Stage 2 load shedding will continue to be implemented until further notice,” it said.


For people living in the major metros, load shedding schedules are available here:

For access to other load shedding schedules, Eskom has made them available on loadshedding.eskom.co.za.

Smartphone users can also download the app EskomSePush to receive push notifications when load shedding is implemented, as well as the times the area you are in will be off.
