Eskom implemented Stage 3 power cuts today, on Friday, 31 March.

Johannesburg Power Cut Schedule:


Here Are Some Tips to Minimise Risks Caused by Power Cuts:

  • Electric surges are one of the most significant causes of equipment damage during a power outage. Installing a surge protection device can help reduce damage in unexpected situations. Arrange for a surge protection device to be fitted to your electrical distribution board or at the power outlet to the electronic device.
  • Ensure that your alarm system is operational and the backup battery works to provide power to the system in case of a power cut.
  • Store a torch in your car if you arrive home at night during a power cut. Most smartphones have a torch or torch apps, which are handy during load shedding.
  • Charge your mobile phone, laptop, and tablet before scheduled blackouts. Then, be sure to charge them again as soon as possible after the power returns. An emergency phone charger (like a power bank) is also good. Power banks come in handy during extended power cuts.
  • Get a small LP gas bottle and lamp. It provides good quality lighting for a large area. You can also use it for cooking and boiling water. It’s a good idea to keep hot water in a thermal flask to make hot drinks.
