Eskom has recently announced that it will implement stage 3 load-shedding from 13:00 on Wednesday 10 February.
“Eskom regrets to inform the public that stage 3 load-shedding will be implemented from 13:00 this afternoon until 06:00 tomorrow morning,” Eskom said.
Eskom’s said Load-shedding will continue until 06:00 AM on Thursday 11 February.
“This load-shedding is necessary as the power generation system is still severely constrained due to high generation unit breakdowns during the past three days, as well as the need to preserve and replenish the emergency generation reserves.” Explained Eskom.
“This morning a generation unit each at the Lethabo, Kendal, and Duvha power stations were taken offline for repairs, adding to the high number of breakdowns and units that failed to return to service as planned,” stated Eskom.
Eskom further said that there is a high probability of load-shedding continuing on Thursday as the power generation system’s outlook is unpredictable.
“We will communicate timeously should there be any significant changes to the power system,” Eskom said.
