Technical faults forces Eskom load shedding

Eskom said on Sunday it will implement stage 1 load shedding from 17:00 until 22:00 this evening.

According to Eskom this is due to a shortage of generation capacity resulting from technical faults at some of our units.

Eskom, however, warned that any unexpected changes on the already vulnerable power system could lead to a change in the load shedding stage at short notice, adding that load shedding is only implemented as a necessary measure to protect the power system.

“As we are currently experiencing cold weather conditions across the country, we urge electricity users to consider energy efficient ways of keeping warm,” an Eskom statement read.
