Eskom to Implement Stage 2 Load Shedding from Thursday Morning

Aug 13, 2020

Faizel Patel – 13/08/2020

Eskom says  it will implement Stage 2 loadshedding starting at 8am on Thursday.

The power utility says its battling with several breakdowns of generation units at its plants, which have taken 2,000 megawatts off the grid.

The blackouts are expected to last until at least 10 pm.

“The delay of the return to service of two units at Duvha and Tutuka and the breakdowns of four units at Kriel, Tutuka, and Kendal have resulted in the need for loadshedding today. These units removed more than 2 000MW of capacity from the system. Eskom is working hard to return as many of these generation units to service.”

Eskom says there is a high possibility that Stage 2 loadshedding may be escalated to Stage 3 for the evening peak and that the constrained supply situation may persist throughout the weekend.
