Eskom has warned that it might be forced to implement stage 1 or stage 2 load shedding at short notice between 5 pm and 10 pm on Sunday evening if supply constraints continue.
The power utility said the constraints were caused by high breakdowns in generation units and high winter demand.
While no-load shedding is anticipated, for now, the embattled state-owned entity said its power system was under severe strain as the shortage of generation capacity persists.
Eskom spokesperson Sikonathi Mantshatsha said: “Eskom would like to appeal to the public to reduce the usage of electrity as the power system is still under server strain. Eskom could be forced to implement stage 1 or stage 2 load shedding if necessary; at short notice; should any further breakdowns occur.”
