Eskom to reduce load shedding stage to Stage 2 on Thursday evening

Eskom announced that it will reduce its load shedding stage to Stage 2 from 22:00 on Thursday.

In a statement, the ailing parastatal says a generation unit each at the Majuba, Matimba and the Arnot power stations have returned to service since last night, while a single unit at Tutuka Power Station was shut down for repairs. It added that two more units are set to return to service during the next 24 hours.

‘’This, together with the expected lower weekend demand, makes it possible for Eskom to reduce the implementation of loadshedding to Stage 2 starting at 22:00 tonight (Thursday).’’

Eskom says Stage 2 loadshedding will then continue until Friday evening.

‘’Eskom will continue to adjust the stage of loadshedding depending on the level of breakdowns,’’ it added.

Eskom again appealed to customers to use electricity sparingly.

‘’Loadshedding is implemented only as a last resort to protect the national grid. We therefore request the public to continue using electricity sparingly, as we strive to return units to service.’’

‘’Eskom would like to apologise for the implementation of loadshedding and will continue to closely monitor the power system. We will promptly inform the public should there be any significant developments,’’ it concluded.
