Load reduction gives some Gauteng residents gloomy start to long weekend

Load Shedding

Eskom has called on thousands of people in Katlehong and Vosloorus to switch off their electric appliances during this morning’s so-called load reduction.

The utility said doing so will protect these machines from possible power-surge damage when it restores electricity at 9 am.

Eskom deliberately cut power to many communities in these parts of Gauteng at 5 am, with the utility saying it was safeguarding its network from overloading.

Affected customers were asked not to report Friday morning’s four-hour blackout, but Eskom does want them to report illegal connections.
