Cape Town - Eskom will implement Stage 2 load shedding from 08:00on Sunday 15 February 2015, and this is likely to continue until 22:00 in the evening.

Eskom says "The electricity supply system remains very vulnerable due to a shortage of generation capacity as several units are currently out of service due to planned and unplanned outages. We are using the weekend to build up diesel stocks and dam water levels for open-cycle gas turbines (OCGTs) and pumped storage schemes respectively."
