GarsHigh (Tshwane Group 3) : Load Shedding Schedule

Please note that this schedule only shows Stages 1,2, 3 and 4 for the GarsHigh area (Garsfontein Ext 17) and is based on information published on the Tshwane Municipality website at the following link: http://www.tshwane.gov.za/sites/Departments/Public-works-and-infrastructure/Pages/Load-Shedding.aspx

Note:  Load shedding stages are incremental which means that when Stage 2 is announced, Stage 1 is automatically included (resulting in up to 2 interruptions) and when Stage 3 is announced, Stage 1 and Stage 2 are automatically included for that day (resulting in up to 3 interruptions) etc.

Stage 1 requires the least amount of load shedding, 3 times over a four day period for two hours at a time, or 3 times over an eight day period for four hours at a time.

Stage 2 will double the frequency of Stage 1, which means you will be scheduled for load shedding 6 times over a four day period for two hours at a time, or 6 times over an eight day period for four hours at a time.

Stage 3 will increase the frequency of Stage 2 by 50%, which means you will be scheduled for load shedding 9 times over a four day period for two hours at a time, or 9 times over an eight day period for four hours at a time.

Stage 4 will double the frequency of Stage 2, which means you will be scheduled for load shedding 12 times over a four day period for two hours at a time, or 12 times over an eight day period for four hours at a time.
