Eskom has announced that stage 1 load-shedding will be implemented between 5pm and 10pm on Monday, June 7.
The power utility says this is due to breakdowns and delays in returning generating units at the Kusile, Kendal and Tutuka power stations.

“The likelihood of load shedding is high for the rest of the week as the power system remains constraint and vulnerable,” Eskom said. Eskom has also urged South Africans to reduce their use of electricity, particularly between 5pm and 10pm when the winter demand is the highest.
