    Yikes! Eskom implements Stage 6 load shedding


    December 7, 2022 - Jolene Marriah-Maharaj

     

      Durban - Eskom has implemented Stage 6 load shedding from 12 noon on Wednesday.

      The power utility said this was due to a high number of breakdowns since midnight, as well as the requirement to strictly preserve the remaining emergency generation reserves.

      Eskom said it would publish a full statement in due course.

      In a statement on Tuesday, Eskom requested that the public exercise patience and tolerance over what they describe as a “difficult period.”

      They said load shedding was implemented due to a high number of breakdowns and the requirement to preserve the remaining emergency generation reserves while creating space to replenish the dam levels at the pumped storage schemes.
