UPDATE: Load-shedding falls back to Stage 1


On Sunday, Eskom declared its downgrade of implementation of load-shedding to Stage 1, which will begin from 12pm to 10pm.

Eskom said it was necessary for load-shedding to occur so as to replenish its emergency generation reserves.

Just this week, Eskom increased the implementation of load-shedding to Stage 4 due to cold, rainy weather and broken generator units.

The power utility is now beckoning on South Africans to make use of electricity sparingly.

Eskom further mentioned that during load-shedding, all non-essential electrical appliances must be turned off or disconnected in order to avoid a spike when the power is restored.
