This is due to increased electricity demand and a shortage of generation capacity.

Cape Town - Eskom has announced that it will implement stage 1 load shedding from 08:30 on Friday, which is likely to continue until 22:00.

This is due to increased electricity demand and a shortage of generation capacity resulting from technical faults at some of our power station units, said the power utility.

"Eskom would like to assure customers that load shedding is implemented as a necessary measure to protect the power system and to ensure that maintenance is carried out in order to guarantee that our supply of electricity can be maintained in the long term," it said.

The utility has asked consumers to use power sparingly as cold weather conditions are being experienced across the country.
