Eskom admits it’s preparing for load-shedding schedules beyond stage 8.

South Africans already struggling without electricity must prepare for the situation to worsen before it gets better, with Eskom admitting it is working on schedules beyond stage 8. The power supplier says it and energy regulator Nersa are busy planning for the possibility of more blackouts. Stage 8 would mean over 12-hours of load-shedding daily. Energy analyst Ruse Moleshe says even stage 8 would already be catastrophic. She told eNCA it would mean a shortage of about eight-thousand megawatts – the usage of more than three Southern African countries.
