Eskom implements Stage 2 load shedding


Eskom implemented Stage 2 load shedding from 16:00 this afternoon. The load shedding, which will end at 20:00 tonight, was implemented due to a severely constrained power system.

Residents can also expect load shedding tomorrow from 09:00 to 22:00.

The power utility says load shedding is due to a breakdown of four units overnight and this morning at the Medupi, Duvha, Majuba and Lethabo power stations, as well as a delay in the return to service of a unit at Medupi, which have resulted in the system being constrained.
