    Due to historical reasons we have two. Just bought an other 25 l of petrol. Had to run yesterday and today. Used over 10 l. Provisionally we will have load shedding later today. Only positive point is that I get tax deduction of 28%.

    So we had a scare - some isolated load sheds and then averted.

    But like a veld fire there are some patches of smoke ...

    Will we still see major load shed disruptions?

    According to Eskom we may have load shedding during the next 8 yo 9 days. Mainly after 17:00. Problem is that their information is proven to be unreliable.

    Our area has constant power issues. Not because of Eskom. Cables damaged, transformers over loaded...

    For some reason I have to suspect this article may be the reason Eskom has done this

    https://citizen.co.za/news/south-afr...f-coal-expert/

    Eskom has run out of coal so they started a strike to give them the excuse for load shedding.
