Eskom has attributed implementing stage 4 to the loss of capacity which includes imports from Mozambique which recently experienced a tropical cyclone.
The utility has appealed to customers switch off geysers during the day and non-essential appliances to assist in reducing demand.
Customers have also been urged to check the load shedding schedule on Eskom's website.
