Cape Town - Eskom has implemented stage 1 load shedding from 07:00 until 22:00 on Sunday "as a result of the shortage of generating capacity".

"Any unexpected changes on the vulnerable and constrained power system could lead to a change in the load shedding stage at short notice," it said in a statement on Sunday.

"The electricity system remains significantly constrained ... for the rest of the week into the weekend and next week as demand surpasses available supply," Eskom said in a power update on Thursday.
