Eskom has announced that it will be continuing load shedding through the week. For all the details on this round of loadshedding, read further.


Eskom has brought back loadshedding but has said things are getting better and has since suspended loadshedding. However, South Africans know to not get comfortable just yet. We have the latest loadshedding updates for you as per the Eskom and municipal schedules.


Eskom has been trying to keep our lights on and this year we saw a lot of loadshedding taking place. Now, Eskom has warned us that there might be loadshedding in our future. Loadshedding usually happens when a breakdown in generation units happen.


We are currently experiencing stage 2 loadshedding until late tonight. This comes as trouble to a country who is observing a national lockdown. Students are doing their work and people are working from home which would then result in delays all over. 


Eskom has confirmed that we will not have loadshedding for the rest of the week. 


Eskom announced that they will be moving loadshedding from stage 1 to stage 2. Stage 1 was observed from 9am this morning but due to the power system being constrained, Eskom has had to make changes. 


Eskom has announced that stage 2 loadshedding will carry on through Saturday. The schedules are now available.


Loadshedding will most possibly be making a return. This comes as a result from electricity usage increasing due to lockdown. This will also have an effect on those working and studying from home. 


The Eskom Expo takes place every year, drawing in hundreds of gifted students across South Africa. With the recent Coronavirus developments, Eskom has decided to make the Expo resources available online to help learners get started. 


Eskom has come under the spotlight this past month as the National Energy Regulator of SA (Nersa) holds public hearings on Eskom's bid to squeeze over R27.2 billion from consumers.


On Friday afternoon Eskom announces that load shedding will be increased to level 4 - until  Saturday 6 am.

The loadshedding continued through Saturday and Sunday.


Ninety-three technical graduates have been deployed to provide much needed support to some of the country’s most distressed municipalities.
