Load shedding jumps to stage 4 on Thursday afternoon


Power utility Eskom says that load shedding will increase to stage 4 on Thursday (4 August) between 16:00-24:00, due to the continued shortage of generation capacity.

“Due to a shortage of generation capacity, coupled with the higher demand due to the colder weather, stage 2 load shedding will be implemented at 05:00-16:00 tomorrow (Thursday). Load shedding will then be increased to Stage 4 during the evening peak period of 16:00-24:00 tomorrow.

“It is anticipated that stage 2 will be implemented at 05:00-24:00 on Friday,” it said in a statement.

This load shedding, it said, will also assist in recovering emergency generation reserves, which have been utilised extensively to meet the increased demand over the last few days.
