🟥BREAKING NEWS🟥 Eskom has implemented Stage 6 Loadshedding with immediate effect from 4:16am today, following the tripping of a generation unit each at Kusile and Kriel power stations.

Eskom appeals to the public to help conserve electricity

Eskom will hold a media briefing at 10:00 to update the public on the way forward.#Stage6 #Loadshedding


What is Stage 6 load shedding: 

Stage 6 load shedding means the grid will need to shed 6,000 MW of power to keep the national power grid from collapsing, which will leave the state-owned power utility starting additional, unscheduled power cuts wherever it needs to and outside of its schedules.

It also means your area could experience blackouts at any time, without warning. The same goes for stages seven and eight, with 7,000 MW and 8,000 MW of power needing to be saved, respectively.

Stage six doubles the frequency of stage three – which means you could be affected 18 times for four days for up to four-and-a-half hours at a time, or 18 times over eight days for about two hours at a time.
