Loadshedding
There is no loadshedding in Cape Town at present.  

 
How to use the schedules when there is loadshedding
 
Find your area number on the map here (zoom in for more detail), then refer to the tables below to look up the loadshedding dates and times. 
 
You may also click here for a map viewer layer file (kmz/l), which gives the loadshedding area footprint. (Note that this requires you to have a map viewer which shows a kml overlay such as Google Earth.) Click on an area to find the area number. The colour coding is similar to the loadshedding map above, which should help you to identify your area.
