Eskom starts stage 2 load-shedding

Eskom announced that it will implement stage 2 load-shedding on Monday 11 February.

The rotational power outages will take place from 09:00 until 22:00, with the objective of shedding 2,000MW of power nationwide.

Eskom said that while many generating units have been returned to service, other units continue to trip, resulting in a shortage of generating capacity.

The power utility advised residents and businesses to use electricity sparingly during this period in an effort to reduce demand.

This is the second day in a row Eskom has implemented stage 2 load-shedding.

The tweet below details the load-shedding announcement.
