Depending on who provides your electricity, stay up to date with the latest information by visiting:
- Eskom Customers: http://loadshedding.eskom.co.za/
- City of Cape Town customers: https://www.capetown.gov.za/loadshedding
- Western Cape municipal load-shedding schedules can be found here: http://www.eskom.co.za/CustomerCare/Towns/Pages/Western-Cape.aspx
- Alternatively, you can download the EskomSePush App from Google Play and the Apple App Store for scheduled times.
You should check these sources regularly, so you are aware of the state of the power system and whether load-shedding is likely to happen, so you can plan accordingly.
