Eskom Moves Load Shedding from Stage 1 to Stage 2 From 9pm Wednesday 9pm to 5am Saturday

Mar 17, 2021

Eskom has announced that due to further loss of generation capacity load shedding will increase to Stage 2 from 9pm tonight and will continue until 5am on Saturday.

The power utility says this escalation in the stage of load shedding is required to safeguard the power system after a further loss of generating capacity at the Medupi, Arnot, Duvha and Kendal power stations.

Eskom says due to its inability to supply the full demand, it has seen an increase in demand, which has put a further strain on the emergency generation reserves today.

“The contributing factors for the losses are boiler tube leaks and units tripping, as well as the delay in the return to service of a single unit at the Kendal power station. Higher than anticipated demand today has also contributed to the extensive use of emergency generation resources.

Eskom says it is working hard to return the units back to service as soon as possible.
