Stage 3 load shedding to be implemented from 8PM

Eskom says it is implementing Stage 3 load shedding from 8PM this evening. South Africans were granted a brief respite from load shedding over the Heritage weekend.

However, Eskom says it has been forced to reintroduce stage three rolling blackouts because it has not been able to adequately replenish its pumped storage dams which are used to produce reserve power to supplement its aging or faulty coal fired power stations.

The highly indebted power utility says stage three will continue until further notice.
