Over the last two weeks Load Limiting has been implemented in some areas in Joburg, where a smart meter will switch off your power temporarily to warn you to cut back on the power you’re using.
City Power brought in this system to try and avoid load-shedding. City Power's Aubrey Machela spoke to Stephen Grootes about whether they are finding that people are responding and cutting back when the smart meter kicks in.
It also seems there is Load Rotation being implemented in the Randburg area.
We have compiled a visual step-by-step guide to Load Limiting. Have a look.
