JOHANNESBURG - Eskom warns there's a high chance of stage two load-shedding on Monday.

Load shedding was terminated late on Sunday.

As coal stocks drop, the power utility says they’ve encountered difficulties over the weekend and the situation has not improved.

LOAD-SHEDDING: Schedules, info, and how it affects you

Maintenance teams worked overnight trying to bring back units.


Last week Eskom announced they were losing more power-production.

Eskom also said it's experiencing “low diesel reserves due to the continued pressure on the national grid.”

The power utility said residents and businesses should use electricity sparingly.
