The utility says the strike by some of its workers at power stations poses a risk to energy supply.

Residents are urged to take note of the schedules as Stage 1 load s​hedding remains a possibility.

Residents can check the load shedding status depending on their location on the area map here.

Eskom customers must type in their area on the Eskom website for their schedule.

Neighbourhoods are demarcated using numbers 1 to 16 on the area map.

The area number listed on the City of Cape Town website will determine what time the power is due to go off on the loadshedding schedule.

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.
