Eskom power grid under immense strain

Eskom continues to warn of possible load shedding as the battle continues to keep up with the high demand on the power grid.

People are also becoming frustrated with not being able to access the Eskom website to obtain updates or schedules as it appears the website is currently down.

A month ago Eskom was forced to implement load-shedding due to unplanned technical breakdowns at multiple power stations.

The power utility is appealing to consumers to switch off non-essential appliances in order to reduce the risk of blackkouts.
