Stage two Loadshedding has been further extended to Wednesday morning, Eskom has confirmed.
The power utility says their generation capacity is still severely under pressure.
Rolling power cuts were meant to end at 11pm on Sunday but further breakdowns at five power stations has put their resources under strain.
“Additional breakdowns have occurred at the Tutuka, Majuba, Kusile, Matimba and Duvha, adding to previous breakdowns at the Kriel and Kendal power stations. Further to this we have had delays in units returning to service at Hendrina, Duvha and restoring full load on the Cahora Bassa line,” a statement read.
“We currently have 6 545MW on planned maintenance, while another 12 915MW of capacity is unavailable due to breakdowns and delays. This has led to our inability to supply the demand.”
Eskom requests the public to continue
using electricity sparingly as the system remains vulnerable and unpredictable.
