Eskom implements Stage 1 load-shedding

Date: Mar 15, 2019

State-owned electricity producer Eskom will implement load-shedding on Thursday March 14, from 11:00 until 23:00.

The utility said in a statement that it will implement Stage 1 load-shedding, owing to a shortage of capacity. Stage 1 calls for 1 000 MW to be rotationally cut nationally.

Eskom, which has been cautioning of cuts for several days without actually resorting to load-shedding, reiterated that the rotational cuts were conducted as a measure of last resort to protect the system from a blackout.
