According to Eskom, Load-shedding stages depend on the extent of the shortage of generation capacity to meet the country’s electricity demand, with stage 1 being the least serious, and stage 8 being the most serious. Outages generally last for about 2,5 hours.

Due to technical issues, there can be minor changes in the load-shedding area boundaries from time to time. Below are the loadshedding updates expected for the week, starting from 7 November until 13 November 2021.
