Eskom announces Stage 2 loadshedding until Friday
Eskom announced that Stage 2 loadshedding will take place from Wednesday, 10 March until Friday, 12 March. The power utility made the announcement on Wednesday, shortly before noon.
“Regrettably, Stage 2 loadshedding will be implemented at 17:00 this afternoon until 23:00 Friday night as the generation capacity is severely contained,” Eskom said in a statement.Read more
However, it added that power cuts may be implemented earlier if any other breakdowns occur. Eskom said loadshedding was due to delays in maintenance and repairs, as well as additional breakdowns. The company said it now needs to replenish emergency reserves.
While the rolling blackouts are scheduled to end at 11pm on Friday, there’s a high probability they will continue into the weekend, according to Eskom.
