Ever since the terms 'load-shedding' and 'Power outages' were introduced to us by our government and Eskom. We all know now and then Eskom will implement stage 1, 2, 3, or 4 load-shedding. But do you know what these terms mean?

Don't stress I wrote this article to answer that question.

The explanations are defined by Eskom on their official website. You can visit the link here.

According to ESKOM, load-shedding stages were created for emergency purposes and can only be implemented for a short period of time.

Stage 1 allows for up to 1000 MegaWatts of the national load power to be shed, usually which means one hour of load-shedding per day depending on the municipality you reside in. or 3 times over a four day period for two hours at a time,

Stage 2 allows for up to 2000 MegaWatts of the national load power to be shed. Stage 2 doubles the load-shedding stage of1.

Stage 3 allows for up to 3000 MegaWatts of the national load power to be shed. Stage 3 triples the load-shedding of stage 1.

Stage 4 allows for up to 4000 MegaWatts of the national load power to be shed. Stage 4 is 12 times the load-shedding of stage 1.
