Eskom to continue implementing Stage 4 loadshedding from 08:00 until 22:00 tomorrow
Wednesday, 02 September 2020: Eskom wishes to confirm that due to the continuing severe generation supply constraints caused by multiple unit breakdowns as well as the additional demand as a result of the cold weather, Stage 4 loadshedding will resume at 08:00 until 22:00 tomorrow.
 
Loadshedding will persist throughout the week as Eskom teams work around the clock to return as many of these generation units to service as possible. Eskom will continue to communicate the stage of loadshedding should there be any further developments. This loadshedding is necessary in order to conserve and replenish emergency reserves while also maintaining the stability of the power
system.
 
Eskom urges the people of South Africa to help reduce electricity usage in order to ease the pressure on the system.
