Eskom has announced that South Africans will face a full day of Stage 4 load-shedding on Monday as it battles a shortage of capacity.
The power utility implemented Stage 4 load-shedding on Sunday. It said rotational power cuts would continue throughout the night at Stage 2 level until 09:00 on Monday, when Stage 4 will again be implemented. Power cuts during the nights have thus far been rare.
Stage 4 load-shedding allows for up to 4000 MW to be shed from the national grid. The power utility said that load-shedding – up to Stage 4 – might also be implemented on Tuesday.
