Here's how to check your load shedding schedule in Cape Town
This article was last updated on 14 October 2021.
Loadshedding has been suspended at 05:00 on Thursday, but significant risks to the system remain and loadshedding could again be implemented at short notice says Eskom.
Eskom has announced that Stage 2 load shedding will be extended until Thursday 14 October.
The power utility says load shedding is necessary to replenish emergency generation reserves.
Meanwhile, the City of Cape Town says city-supplied customers will be on Stage 1 between 6am and 10pm and Stage 2 from 10pm until 6am.

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 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.
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.
