Prepare for more blackouts for the rest of the week, as Eskom has announced that stage 2 load shedding will continue until Sunday.

According to the power utility, stage 2 power cuts will be implemented between 10:00 and midnight on Wednesday, The Citizen reports.

Thereafter, from Thursday until Sunday, stage 2 load shedding will be implemented from 17:00 until midnight.

Eskom said the rolling blackouts were due to the breakdown of four generation units on Wednesday morning, which contributed to the capacity constraints.

The parastatal warned the likelihood that the stage of further blackouts might need to be increased during the evening, if peak power demand is high.

“Eskom regrets to announce that stage 2 load shedding will be implemented from 22:00 until midnight. Starting tomorrow until Sunday night, stage 2 load shedding will be implemented from 17:00 until midnight.”
