Electricity

Overview

One of our Strategic Goals is to keep George - Clean, Safe and Green and to deliver Quality Services - for all citizens of George. Our vision is George - A City for a Sustainable Future. We live our values, focus on our citizens, work smart, act like owners and are the brand. We do our best to manage and maintain electrical infrastructure to ensure you have uninterrupted supply. We are currently, however, prone to loadshedding along with the rest of the country.

GENERIC Load Shedding Schedule for GEORGE and UNIONDALE
This is how it works:
1. The schedule is only applicable if Eskom formally announces loadshedding.
2. The schedule is generic, which means it applies for all the months of the year. If a month only has 30 days, then you just skip the 31st and start the next day on 1 again.
3. The days of the month is listed on top from 1 to 31.
4. The hours of the day is listed on the left, starting time first and ending time in the second block.
5. The dark blue blocks are the times in which loadshedding will apply, if it is announced by Eskom.
6. The number inside the blue box is the STAGE of loadshedding that applies for that time. So, if the block has a 1 in it, that is the date and time on which Stage 1 loadshedding will apply - if Eskom announces Stage 1 loadshedding for that day.
7. As the stages go higher, the more times you may be without electricity. So, if Eskom declares Stage 3 loadshedding, the blocks for Stage 1 and Stage 2 automatically also applies together with Stage 3.

 

 

Please follow this link to the Eskom Loadshedding which will inform you which STAGE has been called by Eskom:
