Rekord reported last week: 

No load shedding planned

Jan 29, 2015 11:00

Eskom’s power system has been relatively stable over the past day, minimising the risk of load shedding over the weekend.

Some generators had been taken off for maintenance purposes, but are currently working again. If these generators continue working throughout today, no load shedding will be implemented.

Consumers are however still urged to continue reducing unnecessary use of electrical appliances.

Rekord reported on Wednesday: 

Eskom implements stage one load shedding

Jan 28, 2015 11:00 

Eskom has just announced that they will implemented Stage 2 load shedding across Pretoria from 15:00 until 22:00 on Wednesday.

It said that the power system was severely constrained due to unforeseen technical problems at power stations. Extensive maintenance work is underway.

Rekord earlier reported:

Eskom begins stage one load-shedding in Pretoria       

Jan 27, 2015 10:00

Eskom has announced on Tuesday that a Stage 1 load shedding schedule has been implemented to stabilize the Eskom power grid at 10:00. All parts of Pretoria will be affected.

Consumers are urged to turn off all unnecessary electrical appliances like pool pumps, geysers, air conditioning and lights during the day.

Eskom emphasised last week that the system will remain vulnerable for some time and maintenance work would be intensified at power stations, meaning electricity cuts could be implemented if any issues arise.

Eskom said it’s paying a standard tariff for this extra electricity which is meant to fill the gap created by old systems going offline.

Please see below the planned schedule for Stage 1, Stage 2, and Stage 3.
