Eskom implements stage 3 load-shedding

Eskom has announced that it will implement stage 3 load-shedding from 13:00 on Wednesday 10 February 2021.

Load-shedding will continue until 06:00 on Thursday 11 February, with the power utility stating that rolling blackouts are necessary to restore depleted emergency generation reserves.

“Eskom regrets to inform the public that stage 3 load-shedding will be implemented from 13:00 this afternoon until 06:00 tomorrow morning,” Eskom said.

So it looks like it is from 18:00 - 20:30 if the new schedule is to be believed ... and of course, if we are still in that block. If it is the other block, then it's twice today.

Based on this comment, the situation looks like it is getting worse. But for emergency generation, we would be in load shedding 24/7. Nice!

What keeps breaking down at the generation units? Are they using duct tape?

So many questions, yet so few answers...
