THIS PAGE IS ONLY A STORAGE AREA FOR OLDER LOADSHEDDING NOTICES
When Eskom experiences a generation capacity shortfall on the National Power grid, Load Shedding is immediately required in order to maintain national Network stability. During such an event, all Power Utilities are required to contribute to the national shortfall by reducing load in accordance the National Load Shedding Plan.
In other words: Load-shedding and rolling blackouts can be introduces at any time with little or no notice.

“An increase in breakdowns at our power stations today has further
impacted the availability of sufficient generation capacity. As a result, we
have been unable to build up the necessary reserves for the week ahead.
We therefore regret to announce that up to Stage 2 loadshedding is a
high probability for tomorrow (Sunday, 09 December). As previously
announced, there also remains a high probability of Stage 2 loadshedding for
Monday, 10 December.
We apologise for the late notification and the

Power utility Eskom says on that South Africans should start planning for
load shedding to take place sometime this week.
This after the power utility earlier warned of a constrained national power
supply – which it said was caused by protests and intimidation – for the first
time since late June. Eskom put out similar warnings ahead of rotational load
shedding in the past.
On Monday afternoon at 16:00 Eskom said in an update that customers “are
advised to plan on the assumption that load shedding will take place”.
Customers are encouraged to check their load shedding schedules on the Eskom
and their municipal website.Thanks
