Stage 2 power cuts to start at 4pm

Johannesburg – Residents can prepare to spend the night in the dark.

Eskom is expected to implement Stage 2 power cuts from 4pm on Tuesday to 5am on Wednesday morning.

The embattled power utility said this is due to power constraints.

It said a generation unit at Kusile power station tripped and units at Matimba and Arnot power failed to return to service.

The power utility said the situation is expected to persist for the rest of the week, which may require power cuts to be extended.

Eskom is urging people to use electricity sparingly.
