Eskom to implement late afternoon load shedding

Eskom will implement stage 1 load shedding from 16:00 until 17:00 and stage 2 load shedding from 17:00 to about 22:00 on Monday.

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

"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.

The City of Cape Town managed to avert load shedding on Sunday "due to spare generation capacity at the Steenbras power station", in a new development of cities trying to find ways to adapt to the country's electricity challenges.

Eskom implemented stage 3 load shedding on Saturday as it attempted to build up generation power for the week ahead.
