Eskom to implement load shedding from Friday night to Sunday morning

Eskom has said it will have to implement stage 2 load shedding until Sunday morning.

“Due to the loss of an additional 4 units, we regret that stage 2 rotational load shedding will be implemented at 21:00 tonight [Friday] until 06:00 on Sunday,” said Eskom in a statement on Friday. 

Unplanned outages or breakdowns were at 11 427MW at 20:00 on Friday evening, while planned maintenance was above 7 000MW.

The cash-strapped utility has warned of an increased likelihood of power cuts over the next 18 months as it takes generating units offline to conduct maintenance.
