Search For Your Area

Frequently Asked Questions

The areas we list are provided by Eskom and the various municipalities. There is no naming standard between the various sources, so you might need to get a bit creative to find your area. Try the following:
  1. First, simply search for your suburb name.
  2. If nothing matches, try search for an area nearby, particularly a larger one.
  3. If that fails, try search for the larger area in which your suburb is situated. For example, some smaller towns and cities like George all fall under the same load shedding block. So instead of searching for your suburb, widen your search to George.
  4. If that doesn't work, try do the opposite - search for a smaller area or street inside your area. Some municipalities like Msunduzi and Buffalo City include street names to clarify the blocks.
We aim to list all areas in South Africa, but it's possible that we missed a few, or that the names we use do not match up to what you expect. So if all of the above fails, please contact us on whatsapp or email and we will help you asap. In the near future, we will make the process of finding the correct schedule easier.

If you have any further questions, get in touch via whatsapp, we’re happy to help.
