Schedules and load shedding status for your area.

This article was last updated on Wednesday 14 April 2021.

Eskom says it's not expecting any load shedding on Wednesday after it implemented Stage 2 on Tuesday night.

Check your Eskom schedule or the Cape Town City schedule depending on your area.

Once you have your area number, click it below to confirm your status on CapeTalk's Loadshedding Pages:

Area 1

Area 2

Area 3

Area 4

Area 5

Area 6

Area 7

Area 8

Area 9

Area 10

Area 11

Area 12

Area 13

Area 14

Area 15

Area 16

If you are unsure of your area, have a look at EWN's Cape Town load shedding map.

Residents are urged to take note of the load shedding schedules each day while load shedding is active.

Eskom-supplied areas are subject to all load shedding while the City of Cape Town customers might face lower stage shedding or avoid it for shorter periods.

Be aware that Eskom's load-shedding schedule and the City of Cape Town's schedule may differ. At times, the City will only implement stage 1 or not implement at all if it has additional capacity when Eskom is, in fact, at stage 2.

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

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.

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.

Visit The City of Cape Town for more.

NOTE: Capetonians can check if and when they will be affected from the Eskom website and the City of Cape Town website.

The increased traffic to the sites may prevent you from connecting so we have posted a copy of the City of Cape Town schedules to help.
