Possibility of Stage 2 Load shedding high on Tuesday, Eskom

Power utility, Eskom, on Monday night warned residents and businesses that the probability of Stage 2 rotational loadshedding remains high from 09:00 until 22:00 on Tuesday as a result of a shortage of capacity due to a number of generating units still out of service due to breakdowns.

"Our maintenance teams continue to work through the night to bring back units," Eskom said.

"Customers should note that some municipalities may take longer to restore load. If customers experience outages for longer periods than announced, please contact your supplier (Eskom or the Municipality) as this may be a localised power outage."

Eskom will update customers on load shedding

Eskom also thanked its customers for using electricity sparingly and industrial customers for their participation in load curtailment today.

"We will keep customers informed if there are any changes to the system," it added.

"We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience to affected customers."
