Area 8 Loadshedding Schedule


We are once again in the grips of loadshedding. Besides the inconvenience of being without power this is also an excellent opportunity for criminals to skulk around at night as our cameras, alarm systems, electric fences and perimeter lights fall silent.

We would like to remind residents to make sure torch batteries and power banks are recharged when the power is restored. Please also remember to keep an eye on your alarm batteries during this time as repeated draining could damage the battery and older batteries might not last the 2 and a half hour duration.

We strongly encourage all residents of the valley to become active members of their Neighbourhood Watches.

Fish Hoek and surrounds falls under Area 8 according to the City of Cape Town’s loadshedding schedule.

We’ve put together and easy to read table that can be used for every month of the year. Simply look at the line that corresponds with today’s date, e.g. if today is the 2nd then area 8 would lose power between 22h00 – 00h30 during Stage 1 and for Stage 2 we would be without power between 06h00 – 08h30 and 22h00 – 00h30.

Update 6 December 2018: We now have a downloadable version of our schedule available for you to print and stick on your fridge. You can download the Area 8 Loadshedding schedule by clicking on the following link, Loadshedding Schedule Area 8 – 6 December 2018 v1.0
