Eish Kom: Eskom Says Expect Stage 2 Power Cut Today

no lightJohannesburg – South African power utility Eskom said on Thursday it would implement controlled outages from 10am until 10pm because it did not have the capacity to meet demand.

Cash-strapped Eskom said on its Twitter feed the outages would be rolled out in Stage 2, which means it needs to reduce 2 000 MW of demand from the grid.

“We do not have enough generating units, we are forced to implement Stage 2 of load shedding from 10am to 10pm,” spokesman Khulu Phasiwe said.

Eskom never loved us.
