Another day with no power as Eskom says stage 2 load-shedding on Monday
SA will suffer another day of rotational power cuts, after Eskom said on Sunday night that stage 2 load-shedding would continue on Monday morning.
In a statement, the power utility said it was unable to get its power generation units back up and running after breakdowns last week.
This means stage 2 load-shedding was needed from 9am to 10pm on Monday - with Sunday's power cuts to end at 10pm.
“Implementing load-shedding tomorrow [Monday] is also necessary to replenish the emergency generation reserves to better prepare for the week,” the statement said.
Eskom said it would experience energy supply constraints in the week, noting that demand was increasing due to cold weather.
