MZANSI is set to be plunged into darkness yet again.

Eskom announced yesterday that it would implement stage 4 load shedding between 1pm and 10pm. Stage 4 is the most severe level of load shedding.

Eskom, which instituted stage 2 load shedding at 9am on Monday, said it had been forced to move to stage 4 after it unexpectedly lost six additional generating units.

Here’s how the different stages work:

  • Stage 1 – It can be implemented three times over a four-day period for two hours at a time, or three times over an eight-day period for four hours at a time.
  • Stage 2 – Load shedding six times over a four-day period for two hours at a time, or six times over an eight-day period for four hours at a time
  • Stage 3 – Like stage 2 but increased by 50%.
  • Stage 4 – Load shedding 12 times over a four-day period for two hours at a time, or 12 times over an eight-day period for four hours at a time.
