Eskom implements Stage 2 load shedding

Thursday, March 14, 2019

Eskom has started to implement Stage 2 load shedding - up from the initial Stage 1 load shedding announced earlier in the day.

In a tweet on Thursday, the power utility said it will implement up to Stage 2 load shedding as a result of a shortage of capacity.

Stage 2 load shedding is expected to continue until 11pm.

For Eskom customers, load shedding schedules are available on the Eskom website

Eskom customers can also contact the customer contact centre at 0860 037 566.

Load shedding is conducted rotationally as a measure of last resort to protect the power system from a total collapse or blackout. -
