Loadshedding kicks in again

VAAL TRIANGLE - Eskom announced that Stage 2 loadshedding will kick in at 09:00 this morning until 06:00 on Saturday, with a high probability that it would continue throughout the weekend. This is due to a shortage of capacity following unexpected breakdowns. It also reminds customers that there is a possibility of increased loadshedding over at least the next 18 months. Meanwhile, Mineral Resources and Energy Minister Gwede Mantashe says interventions are being implemented to help Eskom meet the energy demand. Mantashe said this when he participated in a debate on the State of the Nation Address in the National Assembly, yesterday. This comes after President Cyril Ramaphosa, in his SONA last week, announced measures that are underway to ensure that there is energy security for Eskom, including the procurement of emergency power.
