Eskom: Load shedding could be implemented in the evenings

Eskom says there should be no load shedding this week depending on how its power system operates.

The power utility’s Spokesperson Khulu Phasiwe said if the power system becomes constrained then they would be forced to implement load shedding in the evenings.

Over the long weekend Eskom again performed a maintenance drive in order to improve the performances of its system ahead of winter.

Phasiwe said during the course of the day we do have enough generating capacity to meet the demand and then late in the afternoon, especially from 17:00 until 21:00 in the evening that is when the system is expected to come under severe strain.

“During that time we may or may not implement load shedding, and all we are asking from people is that they use electricity sparingly and save wherever they can” Phasiwe added.
