Power utility Eskom has announced that it will be extending Stage 2 loadshedding to Thursday “in order to continue replenishing the emergency generation reserves”.
Eskom announced Stage 2 loadshedding for the first time since July last week Thursday.
“In order to continue replenishing emergency generation reserves, Eskom regrets to inform the public that Stage 2 load shedding will be extended throughout the weekend starting from 9pm this evening until 5am on Thursday morning. This load shedding is also necessary to address other additional risks in the generation fleet.
“During this time Eskom will be working hard to return a number of generating units to service and we urge the public to continue using electricity sparingly.”
