Eskom will move from stage 1 to stage 2 load shedding at 18h00 on Thursday, which is expected to continue until 22h00.
This is due to a further shortage of generation capacity as additional units have had to be taken out of service for unplanned maintenance caused by technical faults, Eskom said in a statement. Eskom has implemented stage 2 load shedding every day since Sunday, with Thursday’s stage 1 load shedding starting from 06:00. On Thursday, it said the electricity supply system remains very constrained and vulnerable due to a shortage of generation capacity. “Several units are currently out of service due to planned and unplanned outages.”
Eskom said 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.”
