Eskom stops stage 2 load shedding

Eskom’s media desk stated that it was important to note that restoration of power may take longer in some areas.

The media desk stated this was Eskom’s maintenance season and they expected the power grid to remain constrained for the rest of the summer.

“The electricity supply system remains very vulnerable for the rest of the week due to a shortage of generation capacity as several units are currently out of service due to planned and unplanned outages.”

The media desk said any unforeseen incident in the power system will thus trigger the implementation of load shedding on 26 March.

“We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience to affected customers and we thank all electricity users for responding to our messages to save. Every little bit of saving counts in minimising the severity of load shedding.”

Eskom called on all customers to reduce the load on the electricity grid by switching off geysers, air conditioners, pool pumps and all non-essential appliances throughout the day, which will reduce electricity demand.

“Commercial customers, particularly shopping centres and office blocks, 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.”

The media desk stated Eskom would continue to provide regular updates on the status of the power system through all media platforms.
