Kusile and Kendal Power Stations tripped

Eskom will implement Stage 2 load shedding after Kusile and Kendal Power Station tripped.

As a result, Tutuka, Duvha, Lethabo and Grootvlei have taken strain to supply the demand. “Since the weekend, Eskom has utilised significant amounts of emergency generating reserves. The emergency generating reserves need to be replenished. Eskom will use this period of load-shedding to replenish the emergency generation reserves,” read the statement.
