Eskom load shedding schedule for Saldanha Bay Municipal Area

The load shedding schedule gives an indication of when which areas could be affected/switched off during emergency situations.

Eskom has identified three stages of load shedding (Stage 1, Stage 2 and Stage 3). During the different load shedding stages, there is a possibility that specific areas could be switched off during the times and days indicated.

Please note: Eskom will indicate which stage of load shedding they will apply during an emergency situation.

It is expected that we will only go into Stage 1 load shedding during the winter period. Only if the Eskom system is under severe constraint, will Stage 2 or Stage 3 load shedding apply.

Abbreviations used in the schedule include the following areas:
Vred      -              Vredenburg, Paternoster
Sal          -              Saldanha, Jacobs bay, Marais Industries, IDC industrial (Spoornet Office)
