Eskom increases load-shedding after 3 generating units break down

Eskom has announced that load-shedding will increase to stage 2 from 05:00 until 16:00.

During the early hours of Tuesday morning, the state-owned power utility issued a brief statement saying that this was due to the loss of three generation units last night.

“Eskom will publish another update this afternoon,” it said.

If the load-shedding schedule continues as previously announced, stage 3 will commence from 16:00 this afternoon until 05:00 tomorrow morning.

However, it is unclear whether Eskom will be able to recover enough generating capacity to avoid increasing power cuts over the evening peak.
