Eskom to implement Stage 3 load-shedding until Monday

In a statement, the power utility said, “Diesel reserves for open-cycle gas turbines and water reserves for the hydro-pumped storage schemes were utilised extensively yesterday and overnight to supplement the shortage of capacity and are not at adequate levels to sustain the capacity shortage for today.”

The power utility said the power system is vulnerable and any changes on the system may mean the stage level can change at any stage.
