Stage two load shedding confirmed for Friday
Eskom has warned that the rolling power cuts may last until 11pm tonight.
JOHANNESBURG - Eskom is implementing stage two load shedding from 8am on Friday morning.
The utility has warned that it may last until 11pm tonight.
On Thursday, Eskom implemented stage two load shedding after a unit at the Kusile power station tripped.
HOW TO CHECK YOUR LOAD SHEDDING SCHEDULE
The best way to prepare for load shedding is to see it coming so that you're not caught in the dark.
Here's how you can check your local load shedding schedule:
If your municipality is an Eskom customer, you can look your schedule up on the Eskom website by typing in your area's name.
If your municipality doesn't use Eskom, you can still look up your area's schedule on the Eskom website, on your municipality's website or by giving them a call.
