The utility says this is because of a shortage of capacity.

In a statement, Eskom explains a number of its power units are still out of service due to breakdowns.

Eskom has again appealed to people to use electricity sparingly - as it works on sorting out the problem at these stations.  

Yesterday, the power producer introduced stage 1 load shedding from 11 in the morning but later increased the severity of scheduled power cuts to Stage 2.
