Load shedding is currently in full swing, and expected to likely to stay with us for some time, with stages 3 and 4 to be implemented at least until Thursday.
HOW TO CHECK YOUR LOAD SHEDDING SCHEDULE
While there’s not much we can do about the latest bouts of power cuts, the best way to make it as less inconvenient as possible is to at least know when you can expect it to hit your area.
LOAD SHEDDING SCHEDULE: JOHANNESBURG
Do you live in Joburg and aren’t sure about which block represents your area? You can find out here on City Power’s webpage for your load-shedding schedule. Alternatively, you can check the City Power’s Twitter page below, which has all the details.
Similarly, Tshwane’s load-shedding roster divides areas into groupings. If you’re in the capital, you can consult this list. It’s an easy way to prepare for the power cuts. Already know your numbered group? Check out the City of Tshwane’s Twitter page.
Capetonians should use this map to be in the know about when to expect rolling blackouts this weekend. Once you have identified which block you’re in, you consult the table which features on the second page. You then find the correct date and identify which time period your block appears in. Please note: On some occasions, the City of Cape Town has a slightly altered schedule.
You just need to find your block list here, then double check the city’s official schedule and Bob’s your uncle! You can also follow the eThekwini Municipality’s Twitter account for live updates.
