Load-shedding downgrades to Stage 1

load shedding

Eskom announced on Sunday that it has downgraded load-shedding to Stage 1, starting at midday to 10 pm.

Eskom said load-shedding was necessary to replenish its emergency generation reserves.

The country was hit by Stage 4 load-shedding this week because of cold, rainy weather and broken generator units.

The utility is urging South Africans to use electricity sparingly.

Eskom also said all non-essential electrical appliances should be switched off or disconnected during load-shedding to avoid surges when the power returns.
