Load-shedding mitigation

South Africa is currently battling an energy crisis. To reduce energy consumption, South Africa’s electricity provider has implemented load-shedding schedules across the country. These schedules cut off power in different regions for a few hours at a time. 

Learn more about the measures that De Zeven Guest House has taken to mitigate the impact of load-shedding schedules on our guests.


Load-shedding at De Zeven

At De Zeven we do not have a generator due to our efforts to operate sustainably. However, we have battery banks throughout the property that allow us to keep the majority of the lights on and a couple of plugs to run the essentials including the Wi-Fi and fridges. Guests are kept updated of load shedding schedules in order to plan around these times. During load shedding the plugs in your room will not work, therefore no hairdryers or air-conditioning is available. We have spare power banks if needed and a small generator for emergencies.
