In the Eskom Q&A - what could cause Eskom to push loadshedding to stage 8?
- Risk of stage 8 loadshedding is "very, very low" but depends on state of the system and are not planning on anything beyond stage 6 at this time.
- On adverse effects of stage 6 loadshedding - haven't seen any adverse effects on the grid so far, and will conduct load reductions as necessary to protect against damage.
Note - Stage 8 loadshedding is 13 hours or more of loadshedding / power rationing per day.
