Stage 6 load shedding has been announced until further notice. 

As reported by ECR NEWS: "The electricity provider says this is due to the breakdown of more generation units, and a delay in returning several units to service.

It has been reported that, "The team is working around the clock to ensure that generating units are returned to service as soon as possible."

An issue many people face is what to do during this time...

There may not be electricity, but Stacey and J Sbu are going to plug you with something to do:

1. Sleep Zzzzz

Stacey shares that this is the perfect time to catch up on some beauty sleep so that when the electricity comes back, you can graft. 

"Go to bed and don't 'sleep' on catching those Zzz's," says Stacey.


2. Read a book and call it a night

If Mr Bookworm himself, J Sbu, can't catch up on the latest Netflix shows, he reads a book and chills. After reading a book, he calls it a night and explores the wonder of his interesting dreams.

3. I also use that time to sort cupboards

We can't even imagine what Stacey's cupboard looks like. The mountain of clothes that gets pilled up needs to be tackled and what better time than during loadshedding? 

This is your sign to fix your cupboard during stage 6.

4. Just sit in the car and listen to the radio or music

There is no denying that J Sbu loves music. He likes the freedom of being able to do what he wants, whenever he wants. If you're fortunate enough to be able to "escape" the loadshedding, then go for it, but petrol is very expensive, so maybe don't actually drive anywhere.

5. Braai

A classic South African evening with your mates. Use this time to disconnect and connect while not needing to rely on electricity. 

Kick back, relax, "have a dop", chat to your mates, and have fun.

6. Get a UPS for wifi 

An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is a device that allows a computer to keep running for at least a short time when incoming power is interrupted.

If you get a UPS, then you are able to still watch Netflix, get work done, and stay connected. 

Stay tuned for more updates on the on-going electricity updates.
