Stage 4 load shedding

2 months ago South Africa

Stage 4 load shedding...

As a result of continued pressure on the national grid, Eskom on Monday moved load shedding measures from stage 2 to stage 4.


The power utility has implemented stage 4 load shedding from 1pm until 10pm. 


Stage 4 load shedding calls for 4000 MW to be rotationally load shed while stage 2 calls for 2000 MW to be load shed.


"Since this morning we have unexpectedly lost six additional generating units which have put additional strain on the system, " said the power utility.


This is the second day in a row this year that the utility is implementing load shedding. In December, the utility announced that they would not implement load-shedding until 13 January 2019.


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


The utility appealed to business and residents to continue using electricity sparingly. –SAnews.gov.za
