Eskom to implement stage 2 load shedding

AUGUST 4, 2015

Eskom announced on Tuesday that it would implement stage 2 load shedding due to a shortage of generation capacity. 

"Due to increased electricity demand and a shortage of generation capacity due to power station units being on maintenance, Eskom will implement stage 2 load shedding from 17:00 today and this is likely to continue until 22:00 this evening," Eskom said in a statement.

"Eskom would like to assure customers that load shedding is implemented as a necessary measure to protect the power system and to ensure that maintenance is carried out in order to guarantee that our supply of electricity can be maintained in the long term.

"Any unexpected changes on the vulnerable and constrained power system could lead to a change in the load shedding stage at short notice," Eskom said.
