Here Is How The City Of Cape Town Will Handle This Week’s Load Shedding

The City of Cape Town has made it a little easier for its customers to plan around the recent bout of load shedding after Eskom extended Stage 2 power cuts until Thursday.
Eskom had initially announced it would implement Stage 2 load shedding on Thursday, but then on Friday the power utility announced that in order to continue replenishing the emergency generation reserves and address additional risks it would continue Stage 2 of load shedding.
“During this time Eskom, will be working hard to return a number of generating units to service and we urge the public to continue using electricity sparingly.”
Eskom added that it would communicate promptly should there be any significant changes to the power system.
The City of Cape Town said on Monday that it would continue to protect its customers as much as it could.
City-supplied customers will be on Stage 1 load shedding from 6am until 10pm, then move back to Stage 2. Stage 2 load shedding is expected to continue from 10pm to 6am.
“This is broadly expected to be the routine until Thursday. Any changes or updates will be communicated as soon as possible.”
