Eskom to implement Stage 2 load shedding from 9p.m on Monday

Eskom has announced that Stage 2 loadshedding will be implemented from 9p.m on Monday until 5a.m on Tuesday, to ‘’conserve and replenish emergency reserves.’’

In a statement, the ailing power utility said that since midnight, the parastatal lost a unit each at Camden, Kusile, Duvha and Matla power stations. It added that the return of a unit at Kusile and two units at Majuba power stations are delayed.

Furthermore, the City of Cape Town announced that city-supplied customers will also load shed on stage 2.

Eskom warned that it could implement load shedding at short notice should the situation worsen

‘’Further breakdowns could force Eskom to implement loadshedding sooner or to extend the loadshedding beyond Tuesday morning. Total breakdowns amount to 16 261MW while planned maintenance is 5 350MW of capacity as we continue with the reliability maintenance.’’

Eskom appealed to consumers to reduce the usage of electricity and to switch off non-essential items.
