Load shedding continues Friday with Eskom to implement stage 1 power cuts
The power utility says that the lower level is due to a 'small improvement in generation capacity.'
JOHANNESBURG - Eskom has confirmed that it will implement stage one load shedding on Friday.
The rotational power cuts will commence from 9am until 10pm.
The power utility says that the lower level is due to a "small improvement in generation capacity."
Eskom has been implementing rolling load shedding for more than a week now as it struggles to deal with much-needed maintenance to the power grid.
@Eskom_SA will implement stage 1 loadshedding today from 09:00 to 22:00. We are loadshedding below stage 2 as we have a small improvement in generation capacity. We will advise should the situation change. @CityPowerJhb @City_Ekurhuleni @CityTshwane @eThekwiniM @SABCNewsOnline— Eskom Hld SOC Ltd (@Eskom_SA) December 7, 2018
The parastatal is now expected to give more details next week on how it permanently plans to avoid load shedding.
