JOHANNESBURG - Eskom has implemented Stage 1 load-shedding from midday until 10pm on Thursday.

This is the second time in under a month that load-shedding will be implemented. 

The power utility says consumers should check their load-shedding schedules on the municipal or Eskom websites.

Eskom spokesperson Khulu Phasiwe said that non-Eskom customers should contact their municipalities for a list of which areas would be affected.

During its interim results presentation on Wednesday, Eskom said that its generation capacity was expected to further decrease from 72 percent to below 50 percent at Mpumalanga coal stations, a situation which could intensify blackouts.
