How to check Load Shedding

To check the load shedding in major cities you can check it below:

How to protect your self from load shedding

  • Buy power supply (UPS) systems: Purchasing UPS systems for key electrical equipment can help reduce the impact of unexpected power outages. These devices serve as a buffer, giving interim power to critical equipment, allowing for a safe shutdown or continuing operation during brief outages.
  • Charge your laptop, tablet, and mobile phone: Make sure your devices are completely charged before any planned outages. As soon as the electricity comes back on, make sure to charge them once more. Keeping a power bank or other emergency phone charger nearby is also a smart idea. This is useful in long-term power outages.
  • Backup Power Generators: If you experience extended or regular power outages, installing a backup power generator may be a more complete answer. This guarantees a steady supply of electricity, particularly for enterprises that cannot afford to be without their important appliances.
