Stage 4 load-shedding will continue on Tuesday: Eskom

Date: Mar 19, 2019

Power utility Eskom said it would implement stage 4 load-shedding on Tuesday.

On Monday evening, Eskom said it would continue implementing stage 4 rotational power cuts, which started at 9am and were set to continue until 11pm. This would then be downgraded to stage 2 from 11pm until 9am on Tuesday.

But it will then be upgraded again.

“Stage 4 load shedding will be implemented on Tuesday from 9am to 11pm. This is due to a shortage of capacity,” Eskom said in a statement.

Stage 2 calls for 2,000MW to be shed rotationally load-shed nationally at a given period. In stage 3, 3,000MW must be shed, and 4,000MW must be shed under stage 4.
