Eskom says it will continue to implement Stage 2 load-shedding until Sunday, 17 March 2019, as a result of a shortage of generation capacity due to plant breakdowns and the need to manage diesel and water resources.
The power utility says the management of the diesel and water resources is essential to ensure that the impact of the potential stage of load-shedding in the week ahead can be reduced.
The system outlook for next week further indicates a high risk that Stage 2 load-shedding may be implemented until the middle of next week.
The power utility has again appealed to residents and businesses to use electricity sparingly during this period. Switch off geysers as well as all non-essential lighting and electricity appliances to assist in reducing demand.
Eskom customers can check their load-shedding schedules on the Eskom website (loadshedding.eskom.co.za) or through the customer contact centre on 0860037566.
City-supplied areas are experiencing load-shedding according to Stage 1 until further notice.
