Eskom has announced that it has moved to Stage 6 load shedding from 6pm as a result of a shortage of capacity.

In a statement, Eskom says the move to Stage 6 follows a technical problem at Medupi Power Station impacting additional generation supply.

Eskom says the heavy rains has caused coal handling and operational problems at several power stations.

“We remind customers that load shedding at Stage 6 is not cause for alarm as the system is being effectively controlled. Stage 6 requires 6,000MW to be rotationally load shed.”

Eskom has urged consumers to used electricity sparingly.
