Power utility Eskom says it will be implementing Stage 4 load shedding on Monday. Eskom says rotational load shedding will be implemented from 09h00 to 23h00. “On Tuesday 19 March up to Stage 4 load shedding will be implemented. This is due to a shortage of capacity,” Eskom said.
The power utility says customers should be reminded that load shedding at Stage 4 is no cause for alarm as the system is being effectively controlled.
“Load shedding is a highly controlled process, implemented to protect the system and to prevent a total collapse of the system or a national blackout.
“During Stage 4 load shedding, approximately 80% of the country’s demand is still being met,” Eskom said.
Eskom’s maintenance teams are working round the clock to return generation units to the electricity system.
“We appeal to customers to switch off geysers during the day as well as all non-essential lighting and electricity appliances to assist in reducing demand,” the power utility added.
