Eskom made an announcement yesterday that stage 2 load shedding will be implemented on Thursday, Friday and Saturday in order to replenish emergency generation reserves.
Load shedding on Friday will resume at 21:00 until 05:00 on Saturday morning.
“In order to replenish emergency generation reserves, Eskom regrets to inform the public that stage 2 load shedding will be implemented at 21h00 this evening until 05h00. This is to continue replenishing the emergency generation reserves, which have been depleted due to further breakdowns of a generating unit each at Kriel and Tutuka power stations today. Delays in returning generating units at Tutuka, Grootvlei, and Kendal have also contributed to the deletion of emergency reserves,” Eskom said in a statement on Thursday.
If the generation reserves do not recover, load shedding could continue well into the weekend.
