Eskom forecast indicates high risk of load-shedding for months

Eskom

South Africans can expect intermittent load-shedding for the next three months as power utility Eskom battles with electricity generating capacity.

The country has been experiencing stage two load-shedding all week.

“They don’t have any so-called reserve generation capacity and any further loss of supply generation units will result in load-shedding.”

“As we’ve seen, we’ve had Stage 2 load-shedding for several days now, planned to the end of Sunday but the forecast of Eskom has indicated, a high-risk probability of load-shedding, every week for the next three months,” energy analyst Chris Yelland said.
