Only three days of load shedding expected during winter

VAAL TRIANGLE - outh Africa’s state-owned power utility Eskom expects only 3 days of stage one power cuts, where up to 1,000 megawatts is taken off the national grid, during the winter period when demand increases. The chief executive officer said on Wednesday that they anticipate three days of stage one load shedding , which is a significant improvement from previous forecasts. Cash-strapped Eskom has over the years frequently cut power to residents and businesses as it struggles with ageing coal-fired power plants that generate around 90 percent of the electricity in Africa’s most industrialized economy.
