South African state-owned power utility, Eskom, has today announced that it will commence with Stage 2 rotational loadshedding nationwide.
Due to a shortage of capacity, Eskom will implement Stage 2 rotational loadshedding from 08h00 today and is likely to continue until 22h00.
Customers are reminded to treat all electrical points as live during loadshedding. Stage 2 calls for 2,000MW to be rotationally
Loadshedding is conducted rotationally as a measure of last resort to protect the power system from a total collapse or blackout.
Eskom continues to appeal to residents and businesses to use electricity sparingly during this period.
