Eskom will implement load shedding from 01:00 to 06:00 tomorrow. The power supplier made the following statement on Twitter:
Eskom warns that its power grid will collapse further and that phase 4 load shedding should have been in place over the weekend if industries were already underway for the new year.
Nersa refused to allow bonuses to be financed by additional power tariffs, but Eskom is contesting that decision in court.
If Eskom’s urgent application succeeds next week, power tariffs will increase in April by about 16%.
