Notice to correct fictitious and misleading information
Messages being circulated via social and digital media indicating that there will not be electricity in South Africa are false and misleading.
Loadshedding is controlled and managed on a rotational basis for a period of between two or four hours at a time, depending on the schedule that the customer is on, on a particular day. It must be noted that loadshedding is implemented as a measure of last resort to protect the national electricity system.
