Load-shedding risk high until 2021 – Eskom

Eskom is reminding South Africans that there’s a high probability of load-shedding between now and September next year.

Exactly a year ago, the power utility implemented stage 6 load-shedding sighting capacity issues.

Eskom has been deliberately cutting electricity to many communities across the country in an effort to ease pressure on the already constrained grid.

Spokesperson Sikonathi Mantshantsha said while maintenance was underway at power stations, the risk of rotational power cuts was high.

“There remains a high risk of load-shedding during this period going all the way to around September 2021 when we will start seeing big improvements in the system.”
