Eskom rotates between Stage 2- and 3 load shedding for Monday and Tuesday

Eskom has announced that Stage 3 load shedding will be implemented from 4p.m on Monday, until 5a.m on Tuesday. The embattled power utility said this will be in effect for Monday and Tuesday

It added that Stage 2 loadshedding will be implemented at 5a.m until 4p.m on Tuesday, until further notice.

Eskom’s spokesperson, Sikonathi Manthantsha said the higher stage of loadshedding is mainly due to the high level of breakdowns as well as the depleted emergency generation reserves.

‘’Since Sunday morning a generating unit each at Duvha, Kriel and Tutuka power stations were taken offline for repairs while the delay in returning to service a unit each at Duvha and Majuba power stations have contributed to the delays.’’

‘’A generating unit each at Grootvlei, Hendrina, Majuba, Matla and Medupi power stations were returned to service,’’ he added.
