More unplanned power cuts on the way

Eskom has warned consumers that the electricity crisis is not over.

Eskom has ensured that if consumers use power wisely and co-operate, there will not be any load-shedding during the summer.

This follows a winter that was almost free from power outages.

The electricity distributors said because of a low reserve margin, the electricity supply remains strained. Fanie Zulu, an Eskom spokesperson, urged consumers to reduce their electricity consumption, in order for them to meet increasing demands.

Eskom and the government will embark on an awareness campaign soon, to encourage South Africans to use electricity sparingly.
