Due to the increase in generation unit breakdowns, Eskom regrets to inform the country that it will implement Stage 2 loadshedding starting at 12:00. This will continue until 22:00. This loadshedding has been caused by an increase in plant breakdowns exceeding 3 000MW of
capacity. Eskom is working hard to return as many of these generation units to service.
While five generation units were taken off the grid last night and this morning, a breakdown at the Matimba power station has today resulted in the need for loadshedding. Two units at the Arnot power station, as well as a unit each at Kendal, Tutuka and Majuba were taken off the grid last night and this morning.
