Johannesburg - There is a high possibility of rolling blackouts on Friday, Eskom said on its Twitter account.
“The load-shedding prognosis today (Friday) remains high and is dependent on the performance of the power plant,” the power utility tweeted.
Eskom implemented Stage 2 rolling blackouts on Wednesday and Thursday.
During Stage 1 blackouts, 1 000MW of the national load is cut and 2 000MW during Stage 2.
Eskom has battled to keep the lights on since the collapse of one of its coal storage silos. Diesel shortages and maintenance issues added to its woes.
