Load-shedding in Bay extended to cover 24-hour cycle

LOAD-SHEDDING in Nelson Mandela Bay, when in effect, will now cover the full 24-hour cycle in line with the rest of the country.

This came to light when the municipality uploaded its new loadshedding schedule on its website yesterday.

Since the start of South Africa’s power generation crisis and the introduction of load-shedding, the Bay has enjoyed 16-hour schedules.

This has meant that, on average, load-shedding groups – suburbs and areas grouped together for the purposes of planned blackouts on a rotational basis – have endured about two hours of power cuts during a bout of load-shedding.
