Eskom Stage 4 rolling blackouts to continue indefinitely

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Eskom, which has implemented Stage 4 rolling blackouts until further notice, says the rolling blackouts will be more erratic because of the absence of the buffer normally provided by diesel generating capacity.

Eskom says Stage 4 was implemented because a number of generating units at power stations went down and also because of the lack of emergency generating capacity – a large part of which is provided by diesel generators.

The highly indebted power utility says it will provide an update when there is a significant change.
