JOHANNESBURG – Eskom warned Monday that load shedding may need to be implemented in the short term.

He said this was due to the electrical system being severely limited in the evening.

The utility is closely monitoring the system for any outages of currently available capacity.

Spokesman Sikonathi Mantshantsha said: “Eskom plans to recommission one generating unit each at Kusile and Kendal power stations before the evening peak. If any of these units fail to return as expected, the power system will be severely constrained, presenting an increased likelihood of short-term load shedding.

“The return to service of one generating unit each at Matimba and Lethabo, as well as two units each at Hendrina and three at central Tutuka have been delayed, increasing evening peak stresses.”
