Cape Town – Eskom has warned of stage 2 load shedding for the next three days from 16:00 to 00:00.
The power utility said that the national power grid was under constraints.
“Due to a shortage of generation capacity, Eskom cautions the public that Stage 2 load shedding might be required to be implemented at short notice during the evening peak period of 16:00 – 24:00 over the next three days. Eskom will promptly communicate any further changes.
“The delay in returning a generation unit to service each at Arnot, Kusile and the Koeberg power stations, as well as the failure of a generation unit each at Medupi, Hendrina, Camden and two units at Majuba Power Station, have exacerbated the capacity constraints. Some generation units at other power stations are expected to return to service over the next few days,” said Eskom.
