The power entity Twitter handle @Eskom_SA #PowerAlert stated, “#PowerAlert: The power system remains constrained. Stage 2 Load shedding will be implemented from 8am to 11pm today…We urge electricity consumers to reduce their energy usage. Please reduce the load on the electricity grid by urgently switching off geysers, air conditioners, pool pumps and non-essential appliances.”

Meanwhile Eskom Media Desk @Eskom_MediaDesk stated that this was as a result of a shortage in generating capacity.

Eskom stated that the power system remains constrained and will remain so for the rest of this week.

“Any extra load or faults in the system may necessitate the need to go into load shedding. We therefore urge all electricity customers to reduce their consumption in order to reduce the severity of load shedding. Eskom calls on all customers to reduce the load on the electricity grid by urgently switching off geysers, air conditioners, pool pumps and all non-essential appliances throughout the day, which will reduce electricity demand.”

Eskom called on commercial customers, particularly shopping centres and office blocks, who can also make a big difference by switching off non-essential lights and not leaving office equipment such as photocopiers and computers in standby mode after hours.

Eskom customers are advised to check the load shedding schedules which are available on the Eskom website . Municipal customers were urged to contact their local authorities.
