Stage 4 and 6 load shedding is to be
implemented until further notice

Eskom is expected to alternate load shedding between Stages 4 and 6 for the rest of
this week.

Stage 4 will be implemented between 5 am and 4 pm followed by Stage 6 between 4
pm and 5 am every day.
The State power utility said although a generating unit at Kriel Power Station was
brought back to service over the weekend, breakdowns remain high, leaving some 18
016MW of generating capacity offline with a further 3 987MW out of service for planned

“In the same period, two other generation units at Kriel and a unit at Matla power
stations were taken out of service due to breakdowns. In addition, the delay in returning
units to service at Arnot, Camden, and Kendal and two units each at Hendrina and
Tutuka power stations continue to add to the current capacity constraints.

“The team is working around the clock to ensure that generating units are returned to
service as soon as possible,” Eskom said.
The electricity provider once again called on South Africans to conserve electricity.
“We thank those South Africans who do heed the call to use electricity sparingly and
efficiently, including switching off geysers from 5 pm to 9 pm, in helping to alleviate the
pressure on the power system and avoiding higher stages of load shedding,” Eskom
