The risk of power cuts is moderate, with the system expected to become constrained in the afternoon, Eskom said on Monday.

"The risk of load shedding will therefore increase later in the afternoon," the power utility said.

Stage two blackouts were implemented on Saturday as several units were out of service due to planned and unplanned outages.

During stage one blackouts 1000MW of the national load is cut, 2000MW during stage two, and 4000MW in stage three.
