Eskom appeals to the public to reduce the usage of electricity as the power system is under severe strain as the shortage of generation capacity still persists. In a statement, the Power utility said the supply constraints are caused by high breakdowns in generation units and high winter demand.
“While No loadshedding is anticipated at this point, Eskom could be forced to implement Stage 1 or , if Necessary, Stage 2 loadshedding at short notice should any further breakdowns occur. This is most likely to occur between 5pm and 10pm in the evening” said Eskom.
