Durban - To the horror of many South Africans, the power utility, Eskom has warned that load-shedding would be implemented country-wide after it had experienced a shortage of capacity due to a number of generating units being out of service.
For the first time on Monday, Eskom implemented stage 4 load shedding which meant that some area in Durban were hit twice by power cuts.
Stage 4 load-shedding however ended at 10.11pm on Monday night, Eskom said.
But the probability of rotational load shedding remained high on Tuesday with the power utility moving to implement stage 3 load shedding.
Stage 1 requires 1000MW, Stage 2 requires 2000MW, Stage 3 requires 3000MW and Stage 4 calls for 4000MW to be rotationally load shed nationally at a given period, the power utility said.
