Eskom implements Stage 2 rotational loadshedding

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 loadshed nationally at a given period. Read more: Loadshedding: OUTA calls for bold intervention

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.
