Load shedding alert: 26 January 2015
​Members of the public are notified that the power system is severely constrained today, 26/01/15, due to unforeseen technical problems at power stations. The Municipality has been advised by Eskom to implement Stage 1 load shedding as of 11h00 today.

This will continue until 22h00 in the evening. The Municipality is calling on all customers to urgently switch off geysers, air conditioners, pool pumps and all non-essential appliances throughout the day to reduce electricity demand.

Commercial customers, particularly shopping centres and office blocks, can make the biggest difference by switching off non-essential lights and not to leave office equipment such as photocopiers and computers in standby mode after hours.

In the event of rotational load shedding, please switch off all appliances to prevent overload tripping when the power does return.

The load shedding schedule is available on the Municipal website:
