“Load shedding should be a fair and equal experience and our new schedules will provide a balance between equity and predictability” indicates Alwie Lester, Eskom Provincial Head.

Eskom in the Western Cape has taken into account the customer feedback. “We have engaged regularly with different segments of our customer base and as much as we are trying to avoid load shedding, when it is implemented we want to give our customers a better experience therefore rotating the load fairly across all our customers” Lester explains.

The previous load shedding schedules were from 06:00 -22:00 in stage 1 and stage 2. “Our new schedules are designed to accommodate a 24 hour cycle in all three stages” Lester clarifies.

The schedules are also designed to ensure where the City of Cape Town and Eskom have shared networks, the customers will not experience different load shedding time slots.

How to interpret the new load shedding schedules:

1. Identify your area block number using the alphabetical list of the Eskom supply areas;

2. Identify the load shedding stage that has been declared;

3. Look at the day of the month for the relevant stage declared;

4. Find your block number in the time slot that you will be shed in
