Sol Plaatje Municipality - Load Shedding Schedule
We are currently at stage 2, which means the municipality could decide how to reduce the electricity usage and we can confirm that Eskom has requested that we further reduce 10MVA currently and we have commenced to reduce the load and managed to provide 23MVA by switching off the geyser loads instead of household loads. Residents might experience some hot water problems tonight in some instances but will be restored when the situation normalises. Depending on the situation this afternoon, should we reach critical levels, stage 3(Eskom decides which customer to shed) we might have load shedding again. The Sol Plaatje municipality has been given the following time schedule for in cases of load shedding.
The load shedding schedule for Sol Plaatje Municipality
- 02:00- 04:30
NB: Reminder that that high lying areas may experience drop in water supply as our Newton Reservoirs complex is electricity depended while low laying areas will continue receive water due as the supply is based on gravity. Our sincere apology to all businesses, schools and all users for the inconvenience. Thanks for the cooperation
ESKOM - POWER EMERGENCY
Thursday, 6 March 2014: Eskom has declared an emergency at 06:00 this morning and has asked key industrial customers to reduce load by 10% as from 08:00. Eskom calls on consumers to urgently switch off geysers, pool pumps and all non-essential appliances this morning to prevent the need for rotational load shedding. The power system is very tight. This risk has increased significantly due to the heavy rains over the last few day and an increase in technical problems experienced at some of Eskom's power stations.
