Load shedding has commenced

Eskom Oudtshoorn has just confirmed that load shedding stage 1 for Oudtshoorn and surroundings will take place between 14:00-16:30 today. The schedule on Eskom website is incorrect. We once again apologise for inconvenience caused.

Eskom commenced with Stage 1 load shedding at 11:29am today (15 June 2018). We anticipate that this will continue until 9pm tonight. This is due to the impact of the current illegal protest action by some Eskom employees at various sites over wage increases.

Eskom is working with all the relevant stakeholders to keep its plant operating optimally however there is a high risk of load shedding over the weekend.

Eskom calls on all consumers to assist by reducing their electricity consumption by switching off geysers, electric heating, pool pumps, and all non-essential appliances throughout the day.

Customers are cautioned to treat all electrical connections as live during this period.

We would like to thank our workers who have continued working under very difficult circumstances and all South Africans who have heeded the call to action to use electricity sparingly.

Eskom is load shedding according to the published load shedding schedules, which are available on the Eskom website (loadshedding.eskom.co.za) or at local municipalities if you are a municipal customer.  Eskom customers can also contact our customer call centre on 0860 037 566 (08600 ESKOM).
