  • Stage 2 load shedding will continue to be implemented on a daily basis between 16:00 and 05:00 until Friday.
  • Stage 1 load shedding will then be implemented daily from 05:00 to 16:00 until Friday.

“The increase in load shedding is mainly due to the need to preserve emergency generation reserves, the delay in returning four generating units to service while many running units are operating at reduced capacity due to technical faults,” the power utility said.
