The City of Cape Town is currently experiencing Stage 1 Load Shedding.
Precautions to avoid damage to appliances:
- Have backup batteries for fences and gates to ensure electric fencing and gates still work during a blackout. It is imperative that backup batteries are installed and maintained;
- Install surge protectors which help to stop the massive sudden flow of energy into household appliances and electronics;
- Unplug appliances: In the event that the power goes out, it is a good idea to unplug any appliance or electronic device that may be vulnerable to the power surges when the electricity comes back on.
