Eskom started implementation of Stage 2 Loadshedding this morning 13 August 2020.

The Power Utility says that the return of Loadshedding is caused by an increase in generation unit breakdowns.

The Loadshedding will be implemented from 08:00 to 22:00.

The areas of Kaalfontein, Allandale, Ebony Park (KAE) and surrounding areas of Ivory Park, Rabie Ridge, Midrand, Kllipfontein and Tswelopele will be affected from 20:00 to 22:00 if Stage 2 persists.

Eskom says that the generating plant continues to perform at low levels of reliability, any unexpected shift such as an increase in unplanned breakdowns could result in a change in the Loadshedding stage at short notice.

There is a high possibility that Stage 2 Loadshedding may be escalated to Stage 3 for the evening peak.

The constrained supply situation may persist throughout the weekend.

The public is requested to use electricity sparingly by switching off non-essential appliances to minimize Loadshedding.
