Eskom has announced that it will implement Stage 4 rotational load shedding from two o’clock on Friday afternoon.
The power utility began with power cuts on Thursday and continued with Stage 2 on Friday morning.
Eskom’s Chief Operations Officer, Jan Oberholzer says this is due to a shortage of capacity and a highly constrained power system.
“I believe it is constrained, I wouldn’t say permanently constrained but it is. We need time to fix it. We expect a big unit back this afternoon, so I don’t foresee any stage higher than stage four.”
Please share the loadshedding checklist with friends and family to ensure that everyone is well prepared during loadshedding.
