More frustrating power cuts for the Cape

Power cuts are continuing to plague parts of the Western Cape as Eskom conducts controlled load shedding to prevent another blackout in the region. Spokesperson Eone de Villiers says they are managing the available capacity, by switching off the power supply to specific areas for about two hours at a time. Load shedding has to be done when the electricity demand is greater than the supply and the Koeberg nuclear power station is not producing any electricity at the moment. Not only areas in Cape Town are affected, but also towns like Hermanus and Calitzdorp. Consumers have been warned that power cuts can be expected until Wednesday evening.
