We are a contracting company that also meets the unique needs of South African consumers and businesses offering UPS and Inverter Back-up Power System Installations, even during the unforseen load-shedding periods..
- When there is not enough electricity available to meet the demand from all Eskom customers, it could be necessary to interrupt supply to certain areas. This is called load shedding. It is different from a power outage that could occur for several other reasons.
- It is a last resort to balance electricity supply and demand. Eskom will only apply load-shedding when all other options have been exhausted.
- It is an effective way to avoid total collapse of the electricity supply grid (a national black-out) which will have disastrous outcomes for South Africa. If unbalances on the power is not managed this could lead to the risk of collapse of the entire power network. If this occurs, it could take more than a week to restore power to the entire country. By rotating and shedding the load in a planned and controlled manner, the system remains stable.
Please help Eskom beat the peak by following 4 actions for 4 hours:
- Switching off your geysers, electric heaters and pool pumps from 5pm to 9pm every day
- Switching off unnecessary appliances and lighting
- Look at alternative heating solutions
