More power cuts as Eskom fixes generators

Power utility Eskom has once again implemented "load shedding" until three generators are fixed, a spokesman said on Monday.

"We have started with stage one of load shedding," spokesman Andrew Etzinger said.

"Three large generators at our power stations are out of service."

Eskom had earlier said supplies at its pump storage power stations had been restored and there would be no load shedding during the week following a weekend that saw stage three "load shedding" being implemented.

Many areas in the country were without power for most parts of the weekend as the power utility and its municipal customers implemented rostered blackouts dubbed "load shedding" to save power reserves for the week.

Etzinger said the cuts would last for most of Monday but as soon as the generators were back on-line "things should be better".
