Eskom has announced that load shedding would be implemented today (Sunday) from 08:00 until 22:00.
“This will be in an effort to build up reserves for the coming week. We would like to thank our customers for their patience and support in using electricity sparingly during the early morning and evening peak periods, said Eskom in a statement.
“Every little bit of savings goes a long way in assisting us to manage the demand and supply of electricity and to eliminate the need for load shedding.
“In winter, the electricity demand peaks in the morning and evening as more electricity is used during these times.
“We appeal to all our customers to continue to reduce their electricity usage throughout the day, but to be aware of the need to save more during the peak periods from 06:00 to 10:00 and 17:00 to 21:00.
“As temperatures drop, we urge electricity users to consider energy efficient ways of keeping warm,” Eskom said.
