Payload phases adjusted for week


The load-shedding outlook for this week has been adjusted slightly after Eskom was forced to “urgently” switch off two generating units.

Phase 2 load shedding will be in effect from 09:00 to 16:00, after which phase 3 will be introduced. This phase will be introduced from 16:00 until Wednesday at 05:00, followed by phase 2.

The two load-shedding phases will alternate for the rest of the week.

The power supplier announced this past weekend that the country would switch between phases 1 and 3, but due to the lack of generation capacity, this is not possible.

“Eskom will monitor the system closely and announce any other significant changes.”
