JOHANNESBURG - Eskom has advised that stage 2 load shedding is to be implemented from 8am to 10pm today.

This follows the implementation of stage 1 and 1 load shedding on Saturday and the high likelihood of rotational outages being implemented today.

The City of Cape Town has advised residents to switch off energy-hungry appliances now to reduce the impact of load shedding today.

The municipality says its able to generate additional energy because of its Steenbras Hydroelectric Power Scheme to support City-supply customers.

However, if demand increases, the City can only assist at Stage 1.
