Stage 2 rotational loadshedding still in operation

Stage 2 rotational loadshedding is still in operation throughout the country on Sunday due to capacity constraints, Eskom has confirmed.

The electricity parastatal implemented stage 1 loadshedding on Saturday morning but later upgraded it to stage 2  due to a shortage of capacity as a result of generating units not returning to service as planned and due to an additional loss of a generating unit.

In a statement on Sunday, it said: “In our latest update yesterday, we communicated that due to the high unavailability of plant, Eskom was unable to build the necessary reserves resulting in high probability of Stage 2 rotational loadshedding from 10am this morning. However, due to a further shortage of generation as a result of units that have not returned to service as expected, Stage 2 rotational loadshedding is implemented from 8am and is likely to continue until 10pm.
