'Power system will remain severely this week- Eskom

Eskom implemented stage 2 load shedding from 08:00 on Thursday which was likely to continue until 23:00 on Thursday evening.

According to Eskom this is due to a shortage of generation capacity as several units are currently on unplanned outages due to technical faults.

“The power system remains severely constrained and will remain so for the rest of the week. We therefore urge all electricity customers to reduce their consumption in order to reduce the severity of load shedding” said Eskom.

Eskom calls on all customers to reduce the load on the electricity grid by urgently switching off geysers, air conditioners, pool pumps and all non-essential appliances throughout the day, which will reduce electricity demand.

Commercial customers, particularly shopping centres and office blocks, can also make a big difference by switching off non-essential lights and not leaving office equipment such as photocopiers and computers in standby mode after hours.

Eskom customers can check load shedding schedules on the Eskom website or contact customer call centre on 0860 037 566. Municipal customers are urged to contact their local authorities.

Eskom will provide regular updates on the status of the power system throughout the day.
