JOHANNESBURG - Energy expert Chris Yelland says Eskom is on "Code Red" for the next six weeks.
Eskom announced Stage 2 load-shedding will continue until Wednesday.
"It really is expected, Eskom has been giving the message, loud and clear, they'll be load-shedding for at least next two years.
"Last year we were saved by COVID-19 as the demand for electricity reduced quite considerably at first and then overall through the year by about 5 percent," he said.
"This year, as the economy picks up, we don't have that saving grace. If you look at Eskom's website with predictions, it is Code Red for the next six weeks."
