Yesterday (Sunday, 13/09/215) Eskom warmed that after five weeks of un-interrupted power-supply loadshedding may be implemented this week.
Eskom has cautioned that the power system will be tight in the coming days owing to maintenance on the Cahora Bassa hydroelectric scheme in Mozambique.
As a result, South Africa will lose about 900 megawatts. Maintenance is expected to be completed next Sunday.
Eskom has already 900 megawatts down from normal as maintenance is carried out on one of the reactors at the Koeberg nuclear station.
The power utility says it will utilise its emergency reserves to augment capacity shortfalls.
