Know your load-shedding area number and schedule
Load-shedding stages depend on the extent of the shortage of generation capacity to meet the country’s electricity demand, with stage 1 being the least serious, and stage 8 being the most serious. The City is divided into 23 areas and outages generally last for about 2,5 hours in each area.
