Stage one load shedding (see schedule)

BY CHARL BOSCH - MAY 11, 2015

Power utility, Eskom, has announced the implementation of stage one load shedding from 16h00-22h00. At this stage it is not known if this will be escalated to Stage 2 as has been the trend in the past weeks.

Eskom has been to meet the demand for power since last year, when it introduced blackouts - to prevent a collapse of the grid, for the first time since 2008.

On Monday morning, the power utility had warned that the load shedding prognosis for today was medium to high and "dependent on the performance of the power plant".
