Eskom has shared the following message with South Africa on Tuesday, the 28th of June 2022.
Eskom regrets to inform the public that stage 6 loadshedding will be implemented from 16:00 until 22:00 this evening. Stage 4 load shedding will be implemented at 22:00 until midnight. Load shedding will then be reduced to stage 2, until 5am on Wednesday morning.
From 5am until 16:00 on Wednesday loadshedding will be implemented to stage 4. Loadshedding 6 will then again be implemented from 16:00 until 22:00 tomorrow evening. This is due to unlawful and unprotected labour action which has caused widespread disruption to Eskom’s power plants. This has compelled Eskom to continue taking precautionary measures to conserve generation capacity and safeguard plants from damage. There is a high risk that that stage of loadshedding may have to change at any time, depending on the state of the plant.
We would like to remind the public that loadshedding is implemented only as a last resort to protect the national grid. We appeal to all South Africans to help limit the impact of the shortages by continuing to reduce the usage of electricity, and switch off all non essential items.
