Eskom: Possibility of weekend load shedding

Eskom: Possibility of weekend load shedding

Eskom says there is a low-to-moderate possibility of load shedding over the weekend.


An emergency response command centre meeting was held by the power utility on Friday to discuss possible load shedding.

Spokesperson Dikatso Mothae says there is some cause for optimism even if the system remains constrained.

“If things remain the same we should not need to load shed for the weekend but it important for us to state that if there is a shift in the system then the risk of load shedding increases.

“As it stands there is a low-to-moderate risk of load shedding”

She adds that it is still too early to predict whether there will be load shedding on Monday.
