Eskom Loadshedding


Cortana functionality available for this app! Try saying "Load Shedding Status" or "Load Shedding Schedule" to Cortana!

This app will automatically notify the user if Eskom's load shedding status changes with a notification.
It is also possible to pull schedules as per configured areas. To use the app, first go to the configuration page and select your province, Municipality and search for your suburb, then select it and click save. Now you can go to the schedules page and click refresh.

The latest schedules will then be available for viewing.
