JOBURG – Eskom has announced that Stage 2 load shedding will be implemented from 6am to 10pm on 15 April.

The power entity Twitter handle @Eskom_SA said it regrets to inform the public that it will once again implement Stage 2 load shedding.

Power cuts started at 6am and would continue until 10pm tonight.

Loadshedding energy-saving tips:

  • Unplug all appliances such as computers, coffee machines, television sets and entertainment consoles.
  • Fix leaky taps: allowing water, especially hot water, to drip down the drain wastes water and electricity.
  • Replace conventional outdoor lights with motion-sensor lamps for security as they use less electricity because they only activate when the sensor is triggered.
  • Switch to solar powered garden lights.
  • Make sure the back-up batteries on your electric fencing and intruder detection system are in optimal working order; replace them if necessary.
  • Set your pool pump to operate for four hours per day – it is enough to keep the pool clean.
  • Make sure the pool pump is set to run outside 5pm to 9pm, the period of peak demand for electricity in South Africa
