Eskom to continue with load shedding this week


By Mpumalanga News

Customers are advised to keep checking their load shedding schedules on the Eskom and municipal websites.

Stage 4 load shedding will be implemented from 09.00 to 23.00 today due to a shortage of capacity.

In a statement tweeted by Eskom, it states load shedding Stage 4 is no cause for alarm as the system is being effectively controlled.  “Load shedding is a highly controlled process, implemented to protect the system and to prevent a total collapse of the system or a national blackout,” reads the statement.
