Here are all the areas that will be affected by load removal today



  • Eskom implemented the Phase 2 load elimination on Friday between 09:00 and 22:00, after a series of unplanned outages.
  • Using the load eviction programs of the municipalities, we observe some of the areas that may be affected.

Eskom, the troubled electricity company in South Africa, implemented Phase 2 load elimination on Friday morning to "protect the power system against total collapse or a blackout."

This after he implemented the elimination of stage 1 cargo on Thursday due to unplanned outages.

Eskom started in November and said that due to "operational challenges" and the deterioration of electricity generation, the reduction of the load can not be ruled out for the rest of 2018 and until next year.

Spokesman Khulu Phasiwe said that the additional electricity generation units were lost overnight, which resulted in the need for stage 2 cargo from 09:00 to 22:00.

The rotary load division of Stage 1 requires that 2,000 MW be loaded across the country. Eskom estimates that one MW can supply electricity to approximately 650 average homes.

"Thanks to all the South Africans for their cooperation and understanding," Phasiwe said in a statement.

The Eskom website crashed shortly after the cargo compartment was deployed, but you can still find power utility updates here.

We look at five major cities to determine which suburbs will likely be affected on Friday, between 09:00 and 22:00:

You can find your suburb's load removal schedule on your website. Your group, or block number, appears on the list when you search your suburb. Unlike other municipalities, where the elimination of the load occurs in blocks of two hours, in Johannesburg, you can expect an interruption of approximately 4.5 hours.

City Power, the city's electric distributor, on Twitter he said He managed to avoid the elimination of stage 2 load from 09:00 to 12:00 due to internal capacity.

If it is out of service and is not on the list, you may have a scheduled interruption.

The city of Cape Town has published a map, as well as a stage table.

Areas 4, 12 will be affected between 09:00 and 10:30; 5 and 13 from 10:00 to 12:30; 6 and 14 from 12:00 to 14:30; 7 and 15 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.; 8 and 16 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.; 9 and 1 from 6pm to 8:30 and 10 and 2 from 8pm to 10:30 pm.

NOTE: If you live in areas 17-23, you can find your schedule at loadshedding.eskom.co.za.

Ethekwini also published load elimination maps, even with a schedule in isiZulu on its website.

In the hours of Friday, 11 and 15 will be affected between 09:00 and 10:00; 12 and 16 from 10:00 to 12:00; 9 and 13 from 12:00 to 14:00; 10 and 14 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. 1 and 5 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. 4 and 8 from 6pm to 8pm and 3 and 7 from 8pm to 10pm.

Ekuhuleni Metropolitan has divided its program into separate blocks, which you can find here, this is for Level 1 only. Stage 2 depends on the amount of energy Eskom needs to save the municipality, and it does not have a timeline above.
