Eskom has announced stage two load-shedding on Wednesday between 9am to 11pm. The power utility says the load-shedding is due to a shortage of capacity.
In the Cresta and Bryanston and Houghton areas, electricity will be out from 4pm to 8:30pm. Johannesburg Central, Rosebank, Killarney and the south of Johannesburg areas are expected to be without electricity from 8pm to 11pm.
Last month, Eskom communicated that “while no load-shedding is expected over summer, the risk however remains as the system is still tight and vulnerable, as we ramp up plant maintenance. Eskom continues to encourage residents and businesses to use electricity sparingly.
#PowerAlert Due to a shortage of capacity stage 2 loadshedding is to be implemented from 9 am to 11pm today. Media statement with more details to follow @CityPowerJhb @City_Ekurhuleni @CityTshwane @CityofJoburgZA @CityofCT @ewnupdates @SABCNewsOnline @IOL @eNCA @SAgovnews
