Load shedding continues to impact all of our lives and the ad hoc implementation of the Eskom schedule makes it difficult to plan. According to Eskom, the load shedding schedule will only implemented in an emergency situation where Eskom cannot meet the national demand from customers and this is most likely to occur in high demand periods between 17:00 & 21:00 during weekdays.

The best way to manage this situation is to:
1. Check the daily LOAD SHEDDING STATUS for Durban
2. If load shedding is being applied, check if the load shedding stage is 1, 2 or 3
3. Check the LOAD SHEDDING TIMETABLE according to the stage and day – UMHLANGA ROCKS IS IN BLOCK ‘C’ – click here for full municipal timetable and area classification.
