Eskom has warned South Africans that load shedding could continue right through the festive season.
Residents are urged to take note of the load shedding schedules each day, as Eskom attempts to restore its capacity.
Eskom-supplied areas are subject to all load shedding, and City of Cape Town customers will soon have to face load shedding like the rest of the country.
When Eskom-supply areas face Stage 2 load shedding, areas supplied directly by the City will experience the less severe Stage 1 because of additional supply from the Steenbras pump storage scheme.
Residents can check the load shedding status depending on their location on the area map here.
Once you have your area number, click it below to confirm your status on CapeTalk's Loadshedding Pages:
If you are unsure of your area, have a look at EWN's Cape Town loadshedding map.
Eskom customers can also type in their area on the Eskom website for their schedule.
Neighbourhoods are demarcated using numbers 1 to 16 on the area map.
Residents are advised to switch off and unplug all electronics and appliances ahead of scheduled load shedding.
If your electricity remains off for longer than the scheduled period, SMS the City’s technical centre on 31220.
