Eskom confirms Stage 2 load shedding to last until Sunday

Mar 15 2019 14:11

Eskom has said that stage 2 load shedding will continue until Sunday and the risk of power cuts remains high until the middle of next week.

The national power utility said the cuts were due to a shortage of generation capacity caused by plant breakdowns and the need to manage diesel and water resources.

"The system outlook for next week further indicates a high risk and that up to Stage 2 load shedding may be implemented until the middle of next week," a statement from the power utility read.

Stage 2 load shedding is being implemented for Friday and is expected to continue until 23:00.

Eskom said that load shedding is implemented rotationally, as a last resort, to avoid a blackout.
