Load shedding and load curtailment moved from Stage 1 to Stage 2 at 10:00 on Friday and is expected to continue until 22:00.
“This is due to a further shortage of generation capacity and to build up reserves to lessen the impact of load shedding,” the utility said.
This is the sixth day in a row that Eskom has implemented stage 2 load shedding, which is when the utility requires 2 000MW less usage by its customers.
The electricity supply system remains very vulnerable due to a shortage of generation capacity as several units are currently out of service due to planned and unplanned outages. Eskom would like to assure customers that load shedding is implemented as a necessary measure to protect the power system. Any additional changes on the already vulnerable and constrained power system could lead to a change in the stage of load shedding at short notice. We will communicate if there is a need to change stages.
